How Do I Join?

Once you've had a look around our Website and want to join Birmingham Fencing Club, please use the contact form at the bottom of the Home page.  Alternatively, you can email mikejoanfencing@hotmail.com or call 07973 632831.

Where Are Fencing Classes Held?

We are a community club, but recently moved to our new venue, The University of Birmingham Sports & Fitness Centre.  Located on the A38 Bristol Road in Selly Oak, on the junction with Edgbaston Park Road. 

Do I Need Expensive Clothing & Equipment?

Not at all.  The Club hold stock of everything you need to use - although some Members, particularly those who have been fencing for some time, prefer to purchase their own.  Tracksuit/joggers and a t-shirt with trainers are fine.  

Can I Park On Site?

Access to the multi-storey car park is opposite Lloyds Bank on Edgbaston Park Road.  Take a token at the barrier and park up free for three hours.  You will need to ensure you validate this token before you leave the Sports Centre, and machines to do this are by the Costa coffee shop on the ground floor.

What Are The Age Limits To Join?

Fencing is a great sport for all ages and abilities, however the minimum age to join is 8 years old.

Do I Need Insurance?

Insurance is included in your membership fee.
