The first two sessions are free. Thereafter for:
Adults, or a person no longer in full time education: £20 per month which is inclusive of membership of the British Fencing Association, the use of club gear and for as many of the weekly sessions to which you wish to come. The subscription drops to £16 as you acquire your own gear, or if you are already a member of the BFA.
For those in full time education it is £10 per month and drops to £8 per month on a similar basis as that for adults.
We prefer subscriptions to be paid by standing order, but cheques are acceptable.
To start, all you need is a pair of non-marking footwear (black skid marks not welcome on wooden floors) and a track suit bottom, or loose fitting jeans. All the rest of the gear is available from the club, that is a protective jacket, mask, glove and of course the weapon.
Once you have decided it is a sport you wish to pursue, members normally start to buy their own gear. Over the first year or so, it is not unusual to acquire, your own jacket (£50), a weapon (£30 to £60 depending on its type), a mask (£50), a glove (£12) and if you have started to enter competitions, a pair of breeches and stockings (£60). These purchases can be made though over a period of time and the Club has plenty of gear to help you out.
