Competitive fencing

We aim to support all fencers, no matter their competitive interests.
As well as providing individual coaching for those with their sights on Opens and A-Grades, we run competitions throughout the year for those with more modest goals.
Being affiliated to the Hertfordshire Fencing Association, we encourage our members to take part in events run by HFA, be those novices' events, senior championships, or team competitions. (When possible, we cover entry fees for team events.)
