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 to go on our waiting lists) and welcome new members and visitors any time.As a club we are looking not only to find future Olympic champions but also to bring fencing to the local community.

We are very keen to 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 once a week to help them keep fit and challenge them at the same time.

We would welcome any friendly matches with other fencing clubs,please e-mail us to arrange or discuss.
