The Juniors Section

The Juniors Section operates four terms a year and is for children and teenagers aged between eight and sixteen. Any junior who fences or is interested in learning to fence can join. They can come to the club, learn and fence at their own pace, and most of all without pressure, and importantly having fun doing so!

The primary weapons used in the Juniors Section are the Sabre and French Foil. There is also the chance of trying out the Epee too. The juniors are provided with the entire basic, minimum fencing safety equipment. When they can fence they have the use of the corresponding electric equipment for the electric Sabre, Foil and Epee.

The classes for junior fencers are held on Monday evenings, between 7 pm and 9 pm, in room 7 at Shrewsbury House. Directions to the venue can be found here on the Location page.

Each term runs over ten weeks, not including bank holidays, and the cost of the Juniors term for 2017  is £50.00 with a sibling discount available, payable in full in cash at the start of the term.
