Welcome to Worthing Fencing Club
Our club is open for complete beginners to experienced fencers. We offer training in épée, which is one of the three weapons used in modern fencing (and the weapon used in the Modern Olympic Pentathlon). The club provides equipment and lessons, and electronic pistes for more experienced fencers to use.
Come along to try out a new sport, hone your skills, or find a challenging new opponent!
When and Where?
We fence on Tuesdays, at Bohunt School from 7-8:30 PM
We are able to accept children 6 years old and upwards.
What can I expect?
Sessions involve a short warm-up with games and exercises, then we split into classes for young/beginners and intermediates. Experienced fencers are welcome to use the electric boxes, or join in with the more experienced class if they like. Kit is provided, but you should wear comfortable sports clothing that covers your legs and trainers/court shoes.
How much does it cost?
If you are trying it out to see if fencing is for you (or your child) then your first session is free! Otherwise, our drop-in fee is £10 for adults (£7 for juniors) or you can buy a ten-week block (£80 for adults, £50 for juniors).
What’s the situation with COVID-19?
Currently, there are no restrictions in place with either the school or the BFA (British Fencing Association), but we are obviously keeping an eye on developments. If parents/carers are staying to watch, we ask that you wear masks or distance from others. Please ensure that you bring your own drinks and refreshments, as we will be unable to supply water. Lastly, if you have been in contact with someone testing positive for COVID, or are feeling unwell, please do not attend.
