2 Important updates!
1. We have been advised by the University that from 15th August to 11th September, there will be no access to the Indoor Jumps and Throws Hall due to building work.
This obviously impacts those fencing in the Pentathlon Hall so during this period you will need to gain access from the Car Park via the Fire Doors. From there, anyone requiring access to the changing rooms or the Indoor Sprint Track will need to exit the Fire Doors and re-enter the building either via the main front entrance doors or via the cafe entrance.
We will have copies of the registers in both areas.
2. Also, please note that with immediate effect, the University has extended the payment period for parking from 5pm to 8pm so if you park any earlier than 8pm, please ensure that you make the £1 payment via the JustPark app

We employ highly qualified professional coaches catering for all levels, from beginners to potential Olympians and from juniors beginning their journey in fencing to veteran fencers (some of whom are also beginning their journey into fencing!). Our youngest member is 8 and our oldest member still regularly competing is in his 70s.
