The Abingdon Fencing Club's beginners course is an ideal way for adults to start fencing. The course will cover
The evening starts at 19.30 when you will be issued with the necessary equipment. This will be followed with a warm up and footwork session followed by teaching from 20:00 until about 20:45. After the taught session is completed you are encouraged to stay on and practice what you have been taught in the class with our other regular club fencers.
You will need to wear a T-shirt, tracksuit or similar loose trousers and trainers with non-marking soles. Long trousers must be worn, shorts are not appropriate for fencing. For safety reasons, tracksuits worn for fencing must not have open pockets (pockets that zip up or have been sewn closed are fine). The other equipment you need, including your weapon plus protective jacket, mask and glove will be provided by the club for the duration of the course.
The cost of the beginners course is £60 per person, or you may bring a friend/partner for a special joint rate of £90 for two places.
This cost covers the 6-week coaching session, use of the club kit, a 7th-week casual team tournament which pairs you with a more experienced fencer PLUS free follow-on sessions at the club until the end of our fencing season in December (normally an additional £18 monthly fee).
This beginner's course is intended for those 16 and above. Under 16s wishing to start fencing should join our junior class
