The Club Today

The Adelaide Swords Club is the largest fencing club in South Australia, with a strong membership base of over 150 fencers. In our community, we are proud to have State Champions, State Team members, Australian Team members, National Champions, Olympians and World Championship medallists.

As a club, we cater for everyone, from absolute beginners to those who want to take their fencing as far as they can. We are open four times a week and offer coaching and classes to children and adults, in all three weapons: foil, epee and sabre. 

The ASC was founded in August 1936 as the “Adelaide Amateur Fencing Club”. Our former venues include warehouses on Gilles St, the Goodwood Scout Hall, and the Hungarian Club. In January 2013 we moved to our current premises at North Adelaide Primary School.
