Coronavirus (COVID-19) Guidance

PLEASE follow recommended government guidelines on Coronavirus. It is in the interests of society that everyone does so and will help protect the NHS and its staff.

Quite rightly, sport is not a high priority at present. However, if we are going to be able to return to a better quality of life that includes sport, using gyms, going to concerts, and other forms of social interaction we must practice social distancing, essential hygiene and self-isolation. PLEASE follow the government guidelines folks.

Please note that we unable to alter your Standing Orders for you. If you email Peter (info@kenilworth-sword.co.uk) to let him know what you intend to do, that would be appreciated.

KSFC WhatsApp Group

These are very uncertain times for all of us. One of the most important things we can do is keep communicating and support each other.

If KSFC parents and fencers have things they’d like to share with others involved in the club and you'd like to opt into a WhatsApp group, please contact Peter with a suitable parent's mobile number. Parents can contact Peter on 07985152084 or via petercormack100@gmail.com

So, if you have ideas about how to workout at home, a fencing article or quiz, something you want to share about everyday life that would be great! Please remember that content should be child friendly and should always consider and be respectful of other's feelings.

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.

  • Ensure you have the correct equipment for the level of competition.
