Cambridge Fencing Club

Cambridge Fencing Club is a three weapon club for men and women. We use a number of electric pistes for all three weapons. Several coaches cover all levels of proficiency in all 3 weapons. We often have company from Cambridge Sword members and occasionally fencers from the University, and encourage all our members to enter competitions as often as possible.


Cambridge Cadets

Cambridge Sword

Cambridge Sword is primarily a fencing club for young people although the advanced sessions are open to adults. Our coach, Pierre Harper, is a very experienced former Olympic fencer who is able to offer excellent coaching in foil for all levels.
