Adult and teen Classes
Never fenced before? No worries! Our try sessions are aimed at those who have no experience with fencing, and are suitable for all fitness levels. We bring the expertise and the equipment, all you need are long track pants, sneakers and a tshirt - and a sense of fun!
We cover the basics of footwork, attack and defence, and by the end you'll be bouting with your fellow beginners!
Our classes are run by qualified, experienced coaches. Try sessions are suitable for boys and girls, men and women, aged 14+.

What happens next?
Once you've completed a try session you can join our continuers' class (Tuesday evenings, 6:30 - 7:30pm). Have fun and keep fit while learning the basics of fencing, and have a bout or two. Once you have done enough of these classes to feel comfortable on the piste, you can start coming in on Mondays and Wednesdays to open training nights.
Cost: $10 per week PLUS club membership. Club membership entitles you to use of all the club's equipment and facilities, and you cannot come on Monday/Wednesday unless you are a member.
