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


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.
Unfortunately, due to a clash with competitions, Linda and Pierre are unavailable this week and so there will be no fencing session on 13th November.  We have tried to find another coach to run the session, but with no success.  We are also unable to run […]
It was great to see so many members joining the fist session of the new term in our temporary home at Dunmow St Mary’s primary School in Great Dunmow. We will be meeting here for this half term until the sports hall at SWCH is repaired.

We would love to hear from you!
