If you are interested in having a go at the Olympic sport of fencing, Active West Lancs associate partner West Lancs Fencing is running another 5 week beginners’ course starting on Wednesday 3rd July 2019.
The sessions will be held during their Wednesday Club nights in the Gym at Edge Hill University in Ormskirk between 8pm and 10pm. There is a minimum age of 12 years.
Why not go along and try this most dramatic of sports?
All sessions include:
- Training by a BFA qualified coach
- All equipment hire (mask, jacket, under plastron and foil)
- BFA insurance
The beginners courses last for five weeks and are designed to teach new fencers the basic techniques of foil fencing, the rules of the sport and, most importantly, how to fence safely.
There is a £35 cost for the course to help is cover the hall hire and coaching fees, however all the fencing uniform and kit that participants need is provided.
