Ready to Fence?
Whether you’re thinking of trying fencing for the first time, or an existing fencer looking for a club to join, we would love you to drop in to one of our training sessions and see what we’re all about.
For beginners, the best time to visit is at the beginning of school terms, or at one of the special events or classes listed below.
Attention Adult Beginners! We are restructuring Tuesday evenings in term 4. There will now be an adult beginner/novice class starting at 8pm, with the option to stay for some friendly social fencing until 9:30pm.
