If you are considering learning to fence but are really not sure if it is for you, there are many opportunities just to get a short taste of the sport at a taster or ‘have-a-go’ session. You’ll find these at County Shows, Village and Town Carnivals, Festivals, Fairs and Fetes where local clubs showcase their activities. Clubs, too, often hold a series of taster-sessions before their main beginners’ courses as a way of attracting people to sign up. Check with your local club (see listings) to find out when they are next holding a taster session for beginners. Most clubs welcome visitors who are curious about the sport – don’t be surprised if you end up being shown some moves. You’ll soon be hooked!
