Beginners (age 13-15)
The Cadets Club beginners programme is for teens aged 13-15. Beginners aged 16 and over can join the Blades Club beginners programme.
How to start

To get started you can choose between one of the following two options. Your choice depends on your personality. If you are confident and you like to get on with things straight away, then you can start with the eight week practice course straight away and practice with other experienced fencers. If you like things more organised and you want to learn things first then get on and practice them then it is best you start with the one day beginner master course. After completing either course, if you feel you still like to do the second course, you can still do that before you join the club programme. It is definately a good advantage to attend both courses before joining the club whichever order you choose.

Either of the above two courses costs £135, however this year we are subsidising 50% of our beginner courses fees. Therefore all you pay is £65. For both courses all kit will be provided. All you need is trainers, tracksuit bottoms, a t-shirt, a jumper and a bottle of water. After completing one or both of those courses you can sign up to the club programm.
