We run semi-regular taster sessions for adults and juniors, which will be advertised on this site and via social media. If you don't see a course advertised, then please get in touch as we're always happy to welcome new fencers to the club. (

For your first session, all you need is normal sports/active/gym type clothing and trainers. Basically something you can move freely in and preferably something that covers your legs. (e.g. tracksuit/joggers/leggings, rather than shorts.) All of the safety equipment you need for the session is supplied by the club.

Fencing involves exercising an an extra layer or two of safety kit, so you get pretty hot (even just doing a beginners session) and a water bottle/drink is therefore highly advisable.

Taster sessions will cost £5 (the same as our weekly fee for other fencers) but if you take part in a taster, your first week at the club is free!
