Welcome to The Swords Club!
The club was formed in 1913, and is the oldest continually operating fencing club in Australia. It operates from the gymnasium at North Sydney Girls High School in Crows Nest.
The club's membership has included many State and Australian champions, and has been the centre for State and National training squads, competitions and camps.
Under Head Coach Vivienne Tucker, who is supported by five other qualified coaches, we welcome fencers of all abilities from beginners to advanced. The Club offers beginners classes for all ages, individual coaching in foil and epee, as well as social fencing.
Please feel free to contact us if you would like any further information on our club or details of lessons and classes. We look forward to welcoming you to The Swords Club.
