Enter, stage right, Worthing Fencing Club!
Worthing has long needed a fencing club and now it is a reality. Rob Parsons (head coach) will be demonstrating his expertise and experience to teach the exciting Olympic sport of fencing. We will concentrate on techniques in épée which will continue to be our benchmark weapon. We hope to extend to teaching foil and sabre in due course.
We have applied for funding from Sport England to launch the club and to buy equipment to allow beginners to try the sport without having to buy their own kit.
The club’s mission is to teach the often hailed ‘elitist sport’ to the people of Worthing for a reasonable price.
The club’s two-hour meetings will consist of a healthy ‘warm-up’ followed by expert coaching and electric piste sparring for all experience levels.
