Are you looking to get fit, socialize and perform the art of sword fencing?
You will be able to enter competitions locally, nationally and internationally, with a possibility of representing your country.
Newton Abbot fencing club, prides itself on a warm and friendly reception to all new members and we would be happy to meet you to introduce you to our sport.
We welcome all ages and abilities, from age 8 upwards. You do not need to have any previous experience and we will even offer you a 2 week FREE trial first.
The club is also pleased to welcome people with physical handicaps under the umbrella of ‘wheelchair fencing’. Fencing is a sport that particularly lends itself to this, and the challenge from a fencer in a wheelchair can be as great and just as difficult as facing your opponent on a conventional fencing piste.
All equipment is provided and all three weapons (foil, epee and sabre) are practised. Every month we have an optional club competition in all three disciplines which is a great chance to show off what you have learned.
The club has three coaches and meets four times a week. It is affiliated to the National organisation, the British Fencing Association and is a member of the Devon County Fencing Union.
At over 30 years old, we pride ourselves on being a really friendly and welcoming club.
See our locations and times. We offer a variety of classes to suit all ages and abilities.
If you are thinking of taking up the sport of fencing, for competition or just for fun, come see us!
My son has been fencing at the Totnes venue for the last few years and thoroughly enjoys it.
He has gained confidence, co-ordination, fitness and has competed nationally.
I have been fencing for a relatively short time but this club is the most welcoming, warm and friendly, I have come across.
I have always wanted to do fencing and took the plunge late in life. It has turned out to be everything I had hoped and expected. I happily recommend to anyone.
