The club was formed in 1913, and is the oldest continually operating fencing club in Australia. We operate 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.
We welcome fencers of all abilities from beginners to advanced. The club offers classes in foil for beginners of all ages, individual coaching in foil and epee, as well as social fencing.
