Wellington South Fencing Club
Members : 14
When you hear the term 'fencing', do you think of early morning duels with swords and pistols? Or maybe you think of films and TV shows like Game Of Thrones, The Musketeers, Star Wars or The Hobbit?
In practice, the sport of Fencing isn't exactly like any of these things, but it's probably the closest you're likely to get!
What it is though is an amazing sport that caters for almost any age and fitness level. It will teach you self-discipline, situational awareness and hone your reflexes like you wouldn't believe! Best of all, it's a brilliant way to keep fit - and it's great fun!
