Club going from strength to strength

There will be no fencing on Friday 16th February due to half term (Sorry).

Kidderminster Fencing Club extends an open invitation to everyone, beginner to expert, to come and try the Olympic and Paralympic Sport of Fencing with our expert and professional three weapon coach.

We are a friendly and inclusive Fencing club focusing mainly on Epee and open to all aged 7+. The club welcomes beginners, experts and returning fencers. As we fence mainly Epee we also support training for the Fencing discipline of Modern Pentathlon.

All the specialist equipment required can be provided and all relevant liability insurance is in place.

Club History

Originally born out of a short course at Kidderminster Leisure Centre way back in 1993, the club was for many years based in Stourport, however with the demolition of the Sports Centre the club moved to its current home at King Charles I School in Kidderminster.
