Barnsley Fencing Club

Welcome to Barnsley Fencing Club.

We are a friendly club located in Penistone near Barnsley. We practice Modern Olympic Fencing - mainly Foil. Membership is open to anyone aged 8 and up. Recent members of Barnsley Fencing Club have been Yorkshire Champions.

We run the Yorkshire Senior Team Foil competition annually and host one of the Yorkshire Youth League competitions. Beginners courses are currently organised twice a year.

We take members aged from about 8 years upwards and have club equipment available.

Our coach, Adam Blight, works full time teaching at clubs and schools in Yorkshire where he brings a wealth of experience to the subject

What To Wear and other advice

The club has a number of sets of essential clothing for fencing, as well as weapons.

The main protective clothing consists of Plastron, Jacket, Glove and Mask.

Most people wear some kind of tracksuit bottom, tee-shirt and trainers with good grip.

(Please ensure that trousers/tracksuit bottoms are not too long, as they can cause you to slip).

We try to wear shoes which are for indoor use only, as dust and dirt from outside can make the floor very slippery and dangerous.

It is a good idea to bring a bottle of water or squash to drink as fencing can be warm exercise
