Following the changes and updates from the government, British Fencing, other fencing clubs, and discussion with the CMWFC committee, we have decided to suspend the club with immediate effect. We will continue to monitor the situation and review our status at the end of April.
We’ve put together various fencing resources, such as some physical, technical, and flexibility exercises, that fencers can do at home to pass the time!
If you have any questions regarding this, please ask.

We have experienced and qualified coaches covering mainly foil and epee. Fencing is available for those aged 8 to 80+ and beginners to advanced fencers.
We run an annual epee competition in November for juniors and seniors, specifically aimed at fencers new to competition or who have been away for a while and looking to get back into competition again. The senior events are British Fencing ranking events and the U13 and U15 junior events are also England Youth U13 and U15 selection ranking events.
Our fencing club started in 2010 with sixteen fencers and now we regularly have over thirty fencers each Friday night. We have thirteen sets of electronic scoring equipment, ensuring our fencers get plenty of practice and fights. The fencing club fences throughout the year including holidays. Each month we have an interclub league night for foil (first Friday in the month) and epee (last Friday in month).
