Recent news items about the club organised by month.

Beginners' Night

GWEFC will be holding an introduction to fencing course on Thursday 26 May.  Give us two hours of your time and we will teach you how to fence.  Bring a friend - it's better to learn together.

Also an oppertunity for those who have attended previous Beginners' Nights to refresh their memory about fencing.


Scots Veterans WF Win Gold

The Scottish Women's Foil team won Gold at the Veterans' Fencing 4 Nations match last weekend (9th/10th April).  The WF team contained several of our club members and regular visitors:

  • Sheila Anderson (Capt) - Bellahouston FC
  • Maria Cabrelli - GWEFC
  • Helen Pitt - GWEFC
  • Maire Steele - WFFC


Glasgow Open 2016 - Results

This year's Glasgow Open was another well attended affair, with several club members competing on both days.  As usual we also had a full complement of people helping run the cafe.

The timing of the Sabre competitions in the afternoon meant that fencers could compete in both Epee and Sabre - although some scratched from Sabre to concentrate on their Epee results.

Men's Epee

  • 21st - Mark McKenzie
  • 23rd - Kris Moodley
  • 31st - Emmanuel Mourlon-Druol
  • 43rd - Ruadh Drummond
