Membership and fees:
If you would like to give fencing a go, we recommend you join one of our beginner classes. These classes are designed to be fun, educational and provide a relaxed environment where you can be active and get involved in a great sport alongside other interested newcomers. Equipment is provided. Your group class fee covers your membership to the club as a Starter Member, your class session and use of the space and equipment. We also have a fencing development session where Starter Members can participate with Full Club Members.
After completing beginner and intermediate classes or a series of private lessons, talk to your coach about when it would be appropriate for you to become a full club member. This will give you access to improving your fencing and to bouting with a range of more experienced fencers. If you already have experience fencing and have your own equipment, this is also the option for you contact us.
A full yearly membership is $400. Your membership year begins from when you register online.
If you're only here occasionally, you can pay $60 per month. This membership cannot be done online. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are a visiting experienced fencer you are welcome to fence for free for 2 club night sessions. Call in on one of the club nights from 7pm or contact the club ahead of time. You can then decide if you want to become a member.
If you want to become a club supporter, the associate membership is $40.
Your membership covers the club nights on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays with an organized warm-up, group footwork sessions and bouting.
Members are expected to have all of their own equipment but if you don't have everything you need we can help with that.
