Beginners Welcome

GWEFC will be holding an introduction to fencing course on Thursday 9th February. Give us a couple of hours of your time and we will teach you how to fence.  Bring a friend - it's better to learn together. There is no charge for this course.

All specialist equipment will be supplied by the club - this will be worn over your own clothes.  Wear clothes you will be comfortable working out in - but no shorts due to safety concerns.  You need to bring some indoor sports shoes with non-marking soles.  The building has changing rooms and showers available.

Back in January

We will be at The Atholl Arms on Thursday 15th Dec for our usual Xmas night out.

Training will resume at Cally Uni on Thursday 5th January 2017.
