Beginner or experienced fencer, everyone is welcome at our club

Fencing is great fun and great exercise for any age group (7+). It doesn’t matter if you are a complete novice or have been fencing for many years, there will be a coaching session that suits you.

Come along to learn how to fence, get some valuable coaching from our Olympic class coaches or just fence socially.

The choice is yours.

Olympic class coaches help you up your game

Whatever level fencing you are aiming, at having high quality, experienced coaches will help you get there. Our lead coaches, Linda Strachan and Pierre Harper, are some of the best in the business having represented the UK at both Commonwealth and Olympic level. Between them they have accumulated an amazing 15 Gold medals, not to mention the host of team, cadet and national titles. 

Under their careful guidance you will be able to progress your skills and up your game to whatever level you want to achieve.

Linda and Pierre are particularly passionate about developing junior talent and we are pleased to welcome children to the club.

What’s on


Happy New Year! We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.  Fencing starts again this week on Saturday 8th January. Please remember to register your attendance for our COVID tracking records here  See you on Saturday.
It has been an eventful term, what with floor repairs, a new venue to find in September and of course the ever present COVID.  Tomorrow (11th December) is our last fencing session before Christmas and we hope that as many members as possible will come along. […]
It was great to be back in our normal sport hall this week .
We are incredibly grateful to Dunmow St Mary’s primary school for hosting the club since September.  With repairs to the sport hall now complete we will be returning to our normal venue at Saffron Walden County High School from Saturday 4th December. See you there!  
Congratulations to junior club member Mary who fought off stiff competition last Sunday to take a bronze medal in the Newham junior under 10’s foil competition.  Its great to see competitions returning and look forward to more club success in the coming year.

We would love to hear from you!
