Glasgow Open 6th & 7th April

The annual Glasgow Open Fencing Competition will be held on the weekend of 6th/7th April at Hutchesons Grammar School.

Entry has now closed, but even if you are not competing, it will be a great opportunity to watch some fencing.

GWEFC will be running the cafe both days.

Congratulations to Sheila

Many congratulations to Sheila Anderson for becoming the British Veterans Fencing Women's Foil National Champion for the second year in a row. She is also the Cat 3 Champion for the second year.

Xmas Night Out 2023

We will close over the Christmas period, and our last night of training will be Thursday 7th December.

However, we will have an outing on Thursday 14th December for Drinks and Food at The Athol Arms starting at 7:30 pm. The Athol has reminded us that they are a cash-only establishment at the moment.


Still to be confirmed, but we expect to start back after the holidays on Thursday 11th January 2024.

Summer Closure

Cally Uni has informed us of some planned closures over the summer. Thursday 15th June will be our last night fencing until Thursday 3rd August.

Although unlikely, we may be able to arrange a short-term venue for GWEFC training during this closure. 

We will attempt to find information as to the summer opening times for other nearby clubs. We courage all fencers to keep training where ever possible.

Unfortunately, Cally Uni needs to close the ARC main hall for the week beginning 6th Feb for maintenance. This means we are unable to train on Thursday 9th February.
