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 Escrime an electric foil fencing club providing coaching and training for 8-16 year old fencers. Beginners are welcome and are invited to join once they have completed one of the short introductory courses run during the summer holiday and during term time by the club or Cambridge City Council's Citysport.
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.
