Welcome to Dacorum Fencing Club

Merry Christmas ! 2016

We are a Hemel Hempstead based club and welcome all fencers,

from complete beginner to advanced level.

Our adult training is  in our home 

 Hemel Hempstead Sports Centre

at 

Thursday 7-9pm 

(we are close on 29th & 5th)

The three types of blade are the     foil,  the  epee     and the  sabre.

The foil being the first most fencers learn as it is the lightest and most flexible. From the that you can carry on with the foil or move to the epee, which is a heavier than the foil but still designed for a similar thrusting motion. The Sabre is more designed for slicing and thrusting motions. Fencing also requires you to wear protective gear, consisting of a metal mesh mask, a heavy jacket, a plastron, a glove with a gauntlet on the sword hand, and breeches.

 If you are  fencing at another club then please  join us for extra fencing or we can arrange a friendly match with your club.

For the dates of our Beginner Courses please see our page for the details,

you can also visit us for a chat or just to watch the fencing at Hemel Hempstead Sports Centre
