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.
