About Us

Hello to all new and returning members!

Fencing is a sport for everyone -  whether you want competetive training or a social fitness workout, feel free to come to one of our Give It A Go events or drop by one of our training sessions.


  • Full training session: Tuesdays 7pm to 10pm (Begginer sessions 7pm to 8.30pm) - The Edge Sports Hall 1
  • Fitness: Saturdays 12.30pm to 2.30pm - Cromer Terrace

Our coached beginners sessions are run by Tom Exeter, a top 50 ranked Mens Foilist.

We also have Robert Kiss, an ex-olympic fencer who coaches individual lessons free of charge between 7.30pm-10pm.



We enter 2 teams into the BUCS league every year, travel to various individual competitions in the UK and host our own national fencing open in April (the Uhlmann Trophy).
Last year many of our fencers competed at the BUCS Individuals, with good performances across the board.
