Truro Fencing Club

Truro Fencing Club is one of the UK’s leading fencing clubs. We cater for fencers, of all ages and abilities, from 5-85+ and from absolute beginner to Olympian; new members of any standard – including absolute beginners on our regular Beginner Courses – are very welcome.

We have grown rapidly over the last few years and now boast a membership of over 150 fencers, and have a top-class team of dedicated coaches for all three disciplines of foil, epee and sabre.

We are very proud of our successes in competitions both in the UK and Internationally, and have had three fencers compete at the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Games.

We are committed to promoting and encouraging fencing through the TFC Gold Foundation, TFC Talent and the Fence Cornwall outreach initiative.

We employ 3 full-time coaches and a manager working on the club’s programme, running over 20 club, school and community sessions.

Our High Performance & Youth development program is second to none, with a large group of talented young athletes training 12-15 hours per week with dedicated S&C, physio support and expert coaching.
