Nunawading venue

Based in the City of Whitehorse, we can be found training in the stadium at the Nunawading Community Centre on Saturdays from 9:30am-1pm.  We train most weeks of the year, except for long weekends and a Christmas break from mid-December to mid-January.
Group classes start from 9:30am, open training from 10am. There are group warm-up and footwork sessions from 10-10:30, and 11-11:30.
Visitors are welcome; there is a $10 visitor fee.  All visitors must be affiliated with their state or national fencing association.  Club equipment is available for use if required.

During school terms, we have classes in all three weapons for ages 10+, and a swordplay class for U9s.  Individual lessons and free-bouting practice can generally take place alongside classes after 10am.  Beginners are welcome at the start of term or during school holidays, and should consider taking one of our regular Beginner Courses.

This is a family friendly session.  There is plenty of seating for non-fencers, and a carpeted annex and kitchenette available.  For fencing parents of young children, there is an informal arrangement to share child-minding to enable parents to fence.  If both parents and kids are fencing, the junior class for ages U9 runs alongside the older fencing classes, and kids with sufficient experience can free-fence on the electric strips.
