Ashburton Fencing Club is a small and friendly "grass-roots" club based in central Croydon.
We are a very informal club so there is no need to pre-book, just 'drop in'
on any Thursday evening.
We welcome beginners and experienced fencers
from the ages of 9 years to 90+, to come along and enjoy the evening, sharing their interests and knowledge in fencing.
The club is located at the
Territorial Army Centre, Sydenham Road, Croydon, Surrey CR0 2EW
and we meet on Thursday
evenings from 6:00pm to 9:30pm.
ENTRANCE TO THE CLUB IS AT THE
FRONT GATE ON THE MAIN ROAD.
Parking is not available and we have been advised not to park along the
front of the building (as you may be towed away!).
Please press the
button located on the gate side panel and someone will let you in.

Safety: Our club (like all fencing clubs), makes every effort to ensure that novice and experienced fencers are made aware of and put into practice, the rules of fencing safely.
Fencing is a combat sport ("a European martial art" someone once quoted) and you fence at your own risk. But believe it or not
fencing is one of the safer sports around - providing that using common sense and observing the rules and guidelines laid down to fence safely, is adhered to.
Affiliations: The club is affiliated to the British Fencing Association and the Surrey County Fencing Union.
