Wickford Fencing Club
This Club is BFA Affiliated

 Wickford Community Centre, Market Road, Wickford, Essex, SS12 0AG.


Charles and Pat Read moved from Kent to Crays Hill in 1964. As experienced competitive fencers finding a club close to home was proving difficult.

Two years earlier in 1962 a group of beginners enrolled at an evening class at Wickford’s Beauchamps School under the tuition of Norman Sharp. When the Wickford Community Centre opened in October 1963, the fencing group became one of the Association’s activity clubs and it’s still going strong today – some 45 years later.

The club has been represented at Regional, County and National level, with some degree of success with some fencers going on to represent Great Britain. The club ran it’s own National Open competition for 20 years with entrants from afar as France, Poland and Australia.

The way to start is to come along to the Wickford Community Centre. Session are on Tuesdays and your first session is FREE.

Youngsters Groups are suitable for ages 8 to 15 years from 7pm to 8:30pm. Adult Groups are from 8:30pm to 10pm.

We offer beginners 6 week courses for all adults and an introductory lesson to Juniors.

All you need is a T-shirt, jogging bottoms and trainers. You can borrow the rest of the kit you need like your sword, mask and jacket from the club. You should bring a cold still drink – water is ideal or alternatively there is a club bar where refreshments can be purchased.
