Seniors’ Session format
In a departure from our traditional format, we are changing the delivery of lessons in the seniors session to enable the coaching staff to get in some fencing time of their own!
From October, coaches Vicki Pritchard, Quentin Stokes and Robin Catling will be giving individual lessons in the 8.15-8.45 slot. If senior members wish to get an individual lesson, you will need to put your name on the lesson list for your chosen date and weapon.

Fees
Please note from September the Adults per-session fee for those paying weekly went up to £5. The Juniors/students weekly remains at £4.
