CdA is a "not for profit" club run by a committe of its members who give their time freely for the betterment of fencing and their love of the sport. There are competitive fencers at the club (including some Internationals) but the general atmosphere on club nights is one of encouragement and respect. Any rivalries that might surface are usually resolved over a post-piste beer!
As a club Registered with British Fencing, we subscribe to the Policies and Guidelines (particularly in respect of Safeguarding, Safety and Diversity) published on the British Fencing website.
We Are Always Open to Visitors!
Over the 25+ years of the Club's existence, the basic abiding principle has always been to provide a welcoming environment for anyone to enjoy fencing. To that end, established fencers are always welcome (also visiting teams, drop us an email
or phone us to arrange a fixture).
We would ask that all your kit (including breeches) is up to standard and that you are prepared to give your BF Membership number (Insurance purposes and all that, y'know). Regrettably, there is a nominal charge of £15 a night.
