Fencing is a wonderful activity that involved 2 oponant fighting with 'rapier-style' swords called foils. At Condover Hall, our fencing activity is a great way to start learning as a beginner as groups will learn the basics of the sport in a safe and monitored atmosphere.
Your group members will learn the 'On Guard' stance, how to move back and forward, how to lunge, parrying and riposte. Individuals will develop these new skills in by competing in short bouts. Once confident with the basics, your group will be split into teams to form a small league for competitions.
Full safety equipment of face mask, padded jacket, gauntlet and protective tipped foils are provided. Participants will be required to wear full length trousers for this activity.
