Learn to fence


westdale fencing club is offering a ‘learn to fence’ program that takes place between 6pm and 8pm on wednesday evenings. this program offers an introduction to foil fencing for those who are new to the sport, and an opportunity for those who have previously fenced to revisit and refine skills, while also developing new technical and tactical skills. 

participants will receive instruction from nccp trained instructors in small group classes which maintain a high instructor/student ratio (typically around 1 instructor for every 5-6 students). westdale fencing club will also provide the necessary fencing equipment that is required for the duration of the program - all you need to bring is appropriate clothing (including long trousers) and a water bottle.

fees for the introduction to fencing program are $140 per month, and you will also need to purchase club, provincial and national memberships each season (september - august).  please note that refunds are not offered for missed classes, nor are we able to offer make-up classes. our introduction to fencing program is set up as a continuous rotating cycle of classes which can be joined on the first wednesday of any month (provided there is space). typically, participants go through the program for at least 3 months to ensure a solid grounding in the basic techniques, before moving on to one of our developmental / competitive programs, though some people stick with the introduction to fencing program for much longer (which is absolutely fine with us!).

if you would like more information, please contact info@westdalefencing.com.
