Who can fence?

We welcome beginners, intermediate and competitive fencers from the age of seven years upwards at Cobham Fencing Club (the oldest fencer that I have heard of retired last year aged 94). We can provide individual lessons for children too young to join the club from the age of five. Men and women can train together on more equal terms than many other sports that are more strength orientated. Timing and technique are the overriding skills needed to succeed at fencing.
