The club runs every Monday evening at the village hall in Frisby On the Wreake. Sessions cost £4.00 per week and this covers the use of equipment.
For new starters it is advisable to wear tracksuit trousers, a t-shirt and good trainers. The club runs for both Juniors (Ages 6 – 11), Youth (Ages 11-16) and Adults. The below indicates the times and groups of the sessions:
6-7pm Junior (6-12)
7-8pm Junior (12-16)
Our Junior Session has become very successful over the last two years. We have several very good young fencers who have achieved excellent results on the National and International Stage. They have won Golds, Silvers and Bronzes at National Leon Paul Competitions and have been picked to represent England in competitions abroad. We also achieved the highest East Midlands Region result at the British Youth Championships, where one of our fencers came 2nd in the Under 14 Boys Epée. This was a fantastic result.
Our senior session has members with a wide range of abilities. The session attracts people who enjoy fencing socially, taking part in local County Competitions and fencing on the National and International stage. We supported one fencer who was preparing for the Athens Olympics in 2004.
