Overview & Philosophy
Mark founded the club in 2006, originally for U.11's and U.13's beginners. In 2015 two students achieved international selections in cadet u.17 and junior u.20 categories for World cup level.. and the club began to develop older squads too. As at January 2020 Battersea / thefencingschool has since then helped nearly twenty students within top 20 of national rankings and between two and four have made top ten ( national selection criteria ) every year since 2015. In our main club sessions ( 30-40 fencers ) there are 10 pistes and open sparring at a really great modern Sports Hall. It has breakout sitting areas, outdoor play area & court, parking & canteen. We often run training camps at Easter, summer & the autumn half term. We are non for profit club, and all our surplus goes into facility and coaching and helping with fees for those on sponsor programme. We offer sponsored places for junior beginners on a needs assessed basis. Highly experienced fencers are also considered for partial or full subsidy.
To see the facilities please visit location/salle and if interested to do some camps or casual sparring pls see training days central London. We also have a Facebook page where you can see news and fun we have.
