Welcome To Harrogate Fencing Club

Welcome To Harrogate Fencing Club

If you are new to fencing or the Harrogate area here’s a little bit about our club and the sport of fencing.

Harrogate Fencing Club is a highly successful fencing club based in the centre of Harrogate at Rossett Sports Centre.Fencing takes place on a Wednesday evening from 6pm to 9.45pm and we have approximately 80 members fencing all weapons.

We regularly run beginners courses (please e-mail us for details) and welcome new members and visitors any time. We work with local schools,universities,scouting groups,sports centres and other groups and run special Taster Sessions.

Fencing is a great sport to learn and participate in at all levels and caters for all ages and abilities. Our members age from 6 to 70 years old and whilst many compete internationally we also have many fencers who enjoy fencing as a social event to help them keep fit and challenge them at the same time.


As a club we believe fencing has a lot to offer .It can enable inactive people of all ages to become active and help with mental wellbeing at the same time.We are all inclusive and have facilities for disabled and wheelchair users as well as experience of individuals with learning and functional skill or co-ordination issues.Everyone is welcome !
