New Beginners Welcome

It was great to see so many of our new beginners back for training last week.

If you want to join them, come along any Thursday evening - it is an ideal time to join, even if you didn't manage to attend our Beginners Night, it is great to have a group of people learning together.

 

Beginners' Night

Give us a couple of hours and we will have you fighting with swords.

We will be holding a Beginner's Introduction to Fencing night on Thursday 10th September starting at 7pm in Cally Uni ARC Building.  The training will run from 7 until 9pm.  There will be someone at reception to direct you to the right hall.  

There is no charge for beginners attending for the first time.  

No training on 20th Aug

Cally Uni need the main hall for an all day event on 20th Aug, so we won't have any training that evening.
