Beginners both Adult and Junior are always welcome at Salle Eton. We run group beginner classes that last 8 weeks. During this time you will have a dedicated coach who will be with you for the whole of the course. The coach will take you through the basic movements, theories and exercises needed to fence. This course is run to the syllabus for BFA Grade 1 and will enter into BFA Grade 2. If you wish to, and when you are ready we can go through the Grading and see if we can award them to you.

After you have completed the beginners course you will be required to become a member of the club and will also need to get yourself a pair of breeches.

Kit Hire is included in the price for the Beginners Course.

If you are new to fencing your first session is treated as a taster session and is free of charge.

Age Limits

You can start fencing at Salle Eton from the age of 8. If you are 14 or older you maybe asked to attend our Adult sessions on Mondays. You can keep fencing up to the age or time where you are no longer fit enough to do so. Harry is in his 80’s and Gene, our oldest fencer is not far behind him!!
