Our goals

The club was started in 2000 with the goal of introducing young people to the fantastic modern Olympic sport of fencing.

We believe that:

  • Participating in fencing should be safe, challenging and fun.
  • Members should have the same opportunities regardless of age, gender or ability.
  • Competing at an appropriate level should be encouraged as a positive way to develop individuals.

We have a proud history of competitive involvement at local, national and international competition. Some notable results have included regional age group champions, individual & team National Championship winners and medallists and European Cadet Circuit medals. Members have represented Great Britain at World Cup level, European & World Championships.
