Welcome to Edinburgh Fencing Club

We welcome fencers of all ages and abilities, from young beginners to grizzled veterans, and from serious competitors to fun club fencers. 
We have fencers and coaches in all three weapons: foil, épée and sabre, and our members are friendly and sociable.

Want to start fencing or returning from a long break?

If you're an experienced fencer, your first session is free, so why not come along and give our club a try?
