Welcome to the Stowmarket Fencing Club website.


We are a friendly fencing club based in Suffolk and we welcome fencers from 8 years old to adults including complete beginners and experienced fencers.  Returning and visiting fencers are also warmly welcomed.


We meet at: Mid Suffolk Leisure Centre, Gainsborough Road, Stowmarket, IP14 1LH.  Click here to visit their website.

On: Sundays from 4pm to 6pm


If you've seen fencing and sword fights in the movies, why not come and try your hand?  We run 6 week beginners' courses for those who've never fenced before and our experienced coaches Steven Morley (Head Coach) and Stuart Clough will equip novices with the skills to progress as far as they wish to go.  For details of our next course please see the 'Latest News' page.  Course fees do, of course, include the loan of club equipment.

Once you have completed the beginners' course, you may wish to enter the world of competitive fencing and the Suffolk County Invitation competition is an excellent first step.  Organised by our Chairman (Stuart Clough) on behalf of the fledgling Suffolk County Fencing Union, this has taken place annually for the last 6 ears and held in Ipswich.  If competitions are not for you, that's fine too as we are also a social fencing club.

Our coaches have Enhanced CRB Clearance, have attended Safeguarding & Protecting Children courses, are First-Aid qualified and are registered with the National Governing Body, the British Fencing Association and the Home Country Body, England Fencing.
