Club Night Instruction and Training:
We are committed to provide all new and intermediate fencers with sufficient instruction to inspire. However please note that no-one in the club is paid for their time or efforts during club nights. Lessons and training can only be given as more experienced fencers become available and are willing to teach. We are more than happy to introduce the basics to younger kids to see if this could be the sport for them. However, it would be appreciated if those younger than 13 are accompanied by a parent.
