About Us


Ever dreamt of handling a sword like they do in the movies?

Or are you looking for an exciting way to keep fit?

We teach all types of modern fencing – Foil, Epee and Sabre. We provide all the equipment, you just need the passion to pick up a sword. No experience necessary.

We have a 4-week introduction course starting the first Monday of each month for £30. The fencing club runs from 7pm – 9pm each Monday.

Club Background

Pitman Fencing Club was founded in the 1970s (formerly known as Portslade Fencing Club), primarily to open fencing up to as a wide a range of people as possible. During 2022 we moved to new customised facilities at Firle Village Hall. We cater for social fencers, more competitive fencers and people who just want to try something new. We are a very friendly and welcoming club, and training is by qualified coaches. So, if you want to try a new sport or revive an old interest then do come along or get in touch for more details – or just come and watch and have a chat about what’s involved.
