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!
