COVID-19 UPDATE:

We will be running our sessions to follow all government guidlines and British Fencing COVID standards and the steps we are taking to keep you safe can be found in the club risk assessment or by asking one of the committe members. We'll be wearing face masks during and outside of training and taking regular breaks to sanitise during sessions.  

Join our WhatsApp group chat for more information and to keep updated; just DM us on Instagram and we'll be more than happy to sort this out and keep in contact with you.

ABOUT THE CLUB:

We fence with foil, Épée and sabre for beginners to the most experienced of fencers.

Foil - this is the weapon that you see when you Google "fencing" and it's what most people think of; it's the smallest of three weapons and it often the first weapon people will learn to fence with. It can only be used to target areas of the body such as the torso (using the point of the blade).

Épée - this is the heaviest of the three weapons and is often considered as the slowest tool to fence with. It has a much larger guard than the foil; allows one to target any part of the opponent as long as they're made with the point of the weapon.

Sabre - this weapon is different to the others as it awards points for hits using both the point and the side of the blade. Hits are allowed to be made anywhere above the waist with the sabre.
