Mark founded the club 9 yrs ago, originally for U.11's and U.13's beginners. Since the founding only 5 fencers stayed through to cadet ( u.17 ) and junior ( u.20 ) level. All five won medals at Local and Regional level, and in 2015 two students achieved international selections ; ( cadet mens foil - GB representation level for the European championships & junior U.20 Womens foil for SWE at world cup level ). The club is now focusing on a new group of U.11 & U.12's and their best ranked fencer came 5th in both the British and the English Youth Championships 2015 for U.11 girls.
there are 3 electric pistes in our training room, and a small permanent armoury, and we regularly run a further 5 additional pistes in the R.A.D auditorium which has seating for 50. To see the facility pls visit location/salle.
We offer sponsored places for junior beginners on a needs assessed basis. Highly experienced fencers are also considered for partial or full subsidy.
We have good results for our U. 11, U.13, U.15 and cadet fencers and a very active club. This is our focus. Senior fencers are 'hobby' fencers and the club only accepts seniors who will fit in technically and tactically and help towards this goal. Some sessions are mixed U.15's and upwards with seniors. We do offer private lessons for adults, beginners or competitors and we run adult beginners courses.
