Fencing beginner courses in Foil are run by the Fencing Club, and also by Sydney Uni Sport and Fitness. In addition, the Fencing Club occasionally runs basics courses in Epee and Sabre.

Fencing club courses

Foil for beginners

Beginner class

Sydney Uni Fencing Club runs 6-week beginner courses on Saturday afternoons, 2.15-3.15pm. These courses are suitable for adults, and for children aged 12 and above. (Children aged 8-11 are still welcome in the Club, but we recommend beginning with one-on-one private lessons rather than an all-age class.)

The cost is $120 for the whole course, and you have to become a member of the Fencing Club (see Membership page for cost details). 

You also have the option of paying $20 for the first class to try it out before committing to the course.

The coach for this course is Ted Elliott.
