If you've ever seen fencing and said “I've always wanted to try that!”, then Bramhall Sword Club could be for you.

Bramhall Sword Club is a well-established club that has been at its current location of Bramhall Recreation Centre for over thirty years. We welcome new members of any and every ability, from complete beginner upwards, and any age from 8 to 80+.

The Club meets every Friday (except Bank Holidays) throughout the year, between 7 and 10 pm.

The Club is principally for social fencers — those who like a bit of good exercise, to learn new skills and also wish to mix with a friendly bunch of people.

The Club has a strong Junior section and we give them priority during the first hour of the evening, although there is nothing to prevent them staying for longer, if they wish. We normally accept junior members from 8 years of age upwards. There is no upper age limit for our senior fencers!

We offer anyone coming to the Club four visits completely free, so you can see for yourself whether you like the sport of fencing and, just as important, whether you like us. If you decide to join, our fully inclusive subscriptions are amongst the best value in the country.

We have a selection of basic equipment on free loan, which you can use for as long as you like.

Coaching is also free, from our qualified British Academy of Fencing coaches. We try to cater for everyone on an individual basis, so you can start at any time and progress at your own pace.

It costs nothing to have a go and you can get more information from Bob Merry at bobmerrybaf@aol.com or call him on 0161 440 9613.
