Membership and Fees

Edinburgh Fencing Club - Club Night

Membership Benefits

Members can train up to three times a week all through the year.
We have a training exchange agreement with Salle Holyrood: EFC members can train for free at Salle Holyrood sessions on Mondays from 7pm, while Salle Holyrood members are welcome during EFC's open session on Tuesdays.

Each competitive fencer receives their own EFC tracksuit top after representing the club at their first competition.

EFC members get a 10% discount on selected Allstar fencing equipment.

The club has a very limited amount of fencing kit available for new fencers to borrow at no extra cost. More information on fencing kit please see the Fencing Kit page.


  • Standard rate: £40 per month by standing order
  • Concession rate: £30 per month by standing order (children U18, students and unwaged)
  • EUFC Members rate: £25 per month by standing order (you must be a fully matriculated student with full annual EUFC membership to qualify) 
  • Drop-in rate: £10 per session

Please note, proof of entitlement to concession and EUFC member rates will be required.


Edinburgh Fencing Club membership is annual and fees are due monthly in advance. Standing orders are to be set up for the 1st of each month, or alternatively you may elect to pay the total annual fee in full. The Edinburgh Fencing Club membership year is 1st September to 31st August. There is strictly no provision to take payment breaks, and membership fees are non-refundable.

Edinburgh Fencing Club reserves the right to suspend membership for anyone skipping or making irregular monthly payments; resulting in a drop-in fee being charged for each visit to Edinburgh Fencing Club during the period where the payment shortfall has occurred. If payment issues are not resolved in a reasonable amount of time, Edinburgh Fencing Club membership may be terminated.

Any fencer not wishing to commit to annual membership is welcome to fence with us as a Drop-in.

Voluntary Cancellation of Membership

Should a fencer wish to cancel their annual Edinburgh Fencing Club membership, written notice would be appreciated a minimum of four weeks in advance of your final fencing session. Please send an email to the Membership Secretary advising of your final payment date.

Please be aware that Edinburgh Fencing Club membership will not be reinstated for a period of six months following voluntary cancellation. During this six month period if a fencer wishes to return, attendance will be as a Drop-in.

If a fencer chooses to continue with Edinburgh Fencing Club as a non-member, a drop-in fee will be payable for each session they attend. This is payable either in cash of direct transfer at the start of the session.


All fencers are required to sign-in at the start of each session.

Visiting Coaches

Edinburgh Fencing Club welcome visiting coaches to train individual fencers for free during our club nights. If the fencer being coached is not an Edinburgh Fencing Club member, they will be required to pay the drop-in rate as detailed above. As space is limited, we ask that visiting coaches email for confirmation at least one week in advance.
