Our beginners course is open to people of all ages from 9 upwards. It is a structured set of 8 lessons over 8 weeks that will finish with taking the internationally recognised Grade 1 Épée Assessment.
The immediately course specially designed by our international Olympic fencers and runs over 5 weeks. It delivers more advanced techniques ranging from tactics to sports psychology. It will put you in perfect shape for joining the club as a fun member. Training does not finish there, one-to-one training with our dedicated coaches is available.
The club meets twice a week all year round at Blue Coats School in Reading.
Wednesday is the main club night with around 12 pistes for adults and 2 pistes for juniors. One-to-one lessons are available with our dedicated coaches. We are also connected to PBT and other fencing businesses which provided discounted equipment.
Once a month our club runs a competition so you can see how you are improving. The club regularly attends a variety of junior and senior level competitions around the country.
It is no co-incidence that Reading Fencing club is the best in the region. Our club of 100 members is run by ex-international fencers of all ages.
"Fencing is an excellent sport to improve lower body strength and speed, as well as hand-eye coordination, Fencing also develops agility and flexibility and is probably most similar to many of the martial arts in terms of the collection of skills it requires." Jason Rogers, Olympic Silver Medalist
