Update: Club Reopening

Dear Members,

Apologies for the lack of updates in the last weeks, it has been a time of change, both in terms of covid regulations, and in terms of new processes for the club. While we had returned to fencing, we also had to take a phased approach to reopening memberships due to limited space in our venue.

However, with the lifting of many restrictions, we are happy to announce that the club is open to all new members once again. To sign up for membership, please follow this link, which will allow you to request a direct debit mandate for monthly membership. Non-members will also be able attend Open Sessions by paying a £10 fee at the door.

New Fencer Guidance

While many restrictions have been lifted, and we no longer require fencers to book a space at the club in advance, some precautions are still in place, and these can be found in our new Fencer Guidance and Risk Assessment.

Please read these before attending a club Open Session or Class and be aware of their stipulations. If you have any questions, please email us.

Restarting Classes

EFC will be restarting U-18 Youth classes from Wednesday, August 25th, 2021:

  • Youth Foil – Wednesdays 6.00 – 7.30PM
  • Youth Sabre – Thursdays – 7.00 – 8.30PM

If fencers are interested in joining these classes, please follow this link, or email us if you have any questions.

New Class

Starting Wednesday, 25th August EFC will be running beginner plastic fencing classes, taking place every Wednesday from 6.00 – 6.45PM for 6 weeks.

These classes are aimed at introducing younger children to fencing in a safe and fun environment. Signups are open to any children in Primary 3 or older (ages 6-7), and are available at £70 per person for the 6 week course.

Due to space constraints at our current venue, we are able to offer just 12 places in this class, which will be allocated on a first come, first served basis via this registration link.

We will endeavour to process all new memberships and class registrations as quickly as possible, but please bear with us as we get the club underway again as we are dealing with an unusually high demand.

Best Wishes,
The EFC Committee
