Sabre night, 6th week of Beginners course and AGM on Monday

This week: Sabre night and Sixth week of the Beginners course

It is the 3rd Thursday of the month, so it must be Sabre night!

* Sabre coach available, in the form of Jon Daley, to give individual lessons.

* Beginners and Experienced sabruers welcome to join in, have lessons and compete.

* One piste dedicated to Sabre, so you’ll be guaranteed to get a good number of bouts. More pistes available as demand dictates!

Remember, if you are a member of a local fencing club and pay regularly there, you can fence with us for a £5 a night.
