About The Club

Watford Fencing Club is a friendly club based at the Nuffield Health Fitness Club at the Royal Masonic School for Girls in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire.

We cater for fencers of all abilities and tastes, so whether you are a beginner, have just started doing competitions, moving up the national rankings, or just enjoy fencing for a bit of relaxation, we are the club for you.

We offer training by our team of qualified coaches for all levels of fencing and all three weapons to fencers aged 16 and over.


Watford Fencing Club trains every Wednesday from 19:45 to 21:45 and is lucky enough to be one of the few fencing clubs within Hertfordshire to operate 50 weeks of the year, only closing for a fortnight over Christmas and New Year.

Each session consists of the following schedule:

  • 19:45 to 20:05: Group Warm-up
  • 20:05 to 21:20: Electric Free Fencing / Sparring
  • 20:05 to 21:10: Individual Lessons
  • 21:20 to 21:45: Group Footwork
