We are Chelmsford’s only open fencing club and offer a warm welcome to experienced and novice fencers like. We fence all 3 weapons each Wednesday evening in a friendly and hospitable atmosphere. Please have a look around this site and see what we get up to – in and out of fencing!

Chelmsford Fencing Club is the city’s oldest and most respected Fencing Club. We cater for adults – from 16 years upwards – and specialise in coaching absolute beginners as well as more established fencers.
We fence all 3 weapons – Foil, Epee & Sabre.

The club is based at the St. John Payne School in Chelmsford and there is parking available on club nights. Changing facilities and showers are available at the venue.

Club nights are each Wednesday evening from 8:00pm until 10:00pm.

Beginners start with foil and are catered for by way of qualified Coaches who are trained and accredited by the British Fencing Association. Absolute beginners undertake an 8 week course which will equip them with the skills to progress further if required. More experienced fencers can avail themselves of advanced coaching from our Head Coach.

Please note that regrettably, we are not able to accept under 16s at the Chelmsford site. Youngsters are advised to contact either Colchester or Brentwood who both cater for these ages

Our charges are some of the most reasonable around and payment methods are flexible. Fees include use of all facilities and coaching by qualified staff and temporary loan of equipment.

Finally, we pride ourselves on being friendly and family orientated. Whilst we are proud to have a successful record in competitions at all levels, the important thing is for us to enjoy ourselves – in fact, our social occasions are the stuff of legends!

Tempted? OK, have a look around this site to see what we’re about and then contact us.
