What do I need to bring to club sessions …

Please note that fencing kit is provided for beginners.  You need to wear a t-shirt, loose fitting sports trousers and flat soled sports shoes.  It’s also a good idea to have a bottle of still water with you for refreshment and something warm to go home in.


Parents are welcome to stop and watch what your child fencing.  Discussing with the family what they have been doing is an important part of consolidate their learning and enables you to get an appreciation of the wide range of skills being learnt.
