The club is nothing without the amazing work of our coaches, both paid and voluntary. They are the guiding force of the club and without them we simply wouldn’t be here.
We are exceptionally fortunate to have a wide and varied group of coaches all of whom add a huge amount of experience and enthusiasm. All our coaches are PVG checked, have first aid and child protection training and are all listed on the British Fencing Coaches Register.
Individual Lessons must be arranged with your chosen coach and is a private agreement with them. Please email or call them to discuss your requirements.
