Fencing Kit for Junior Fencers - Information and Sale

Are you thinking of buying your young fencer their own fencing outfit? Or did your youngster ask for a mask or breeches for their birthday, but you have no idea where to start looking and how much it costs?

Wednesday Junior Foil and Sabre is back on!

 Just a quick reminder that classes resume today, Wednesday 21st August.

There are some changes to the format of the classes with Coach Naomi taking over the reigns for Sabre, and Coach Andy moving across to work more closely with Coach Don in Foil.

Summer Break for the Wednesday Junior Foil and Sabre classes

Over the summer the Junior Foil and Sabre class will take a break; the last coached session is on the 26th of June, and classes resume on the 21st August 2019.

Young fencers are welcome to fence during the open sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7pm to 9pm, or Wednesdays between 6pm and 8pm. There will be no training, but keen fencers have the opportunity to fence others, or book coaches for private lessons.

Is your British Fencing Membership up to date?

It is a requirement of our insurance that all fencers - adults and children alike - must hold a current British Fencing membership.

Have you completed your online registration yet?

All fencers - new members as well as old, full members or concession, EUFC members and even drop-ins - need to register online.
We update our database to comply with GDPR and therefore ask all fencers to complete the
Online Registration Form as soon as possible.

During May most fencing sessions move to the Assembly Hall

From Tuesday, 30th April the gym hall at St. Thomas of Aquin's will be used for exams. For four weeks tables and chairs will be set up for Highers and Nat 5s, and therefore the open fencing sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays, as well as the Wednesday cadet foil and sabre class will move to the school's assembly hall. All fencers are still welcome, but space might be limited.
Thursday's kids' sabre class will take place as usual in the small gym hall.

Keep fencing!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! The club will open again on Tuesday 9 January, with our youth classes running as usual on the Wednesday and Thursday of that week. Hope to see you all soon!
