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.
