Regional Fencing Centre Durham

Regional Fencing Centres are opportunities for additional training, access to coach education and fencing expertise. The focus is to improve fencing in the North East at all levels, supporting coaches, athletes and volunteers in the region.

Regional Fencing Centre Durham is not a fencing club but is open to all fencers who want to learn and develop their fencing. Fencers from other clubs can access sessions at the Fencing Centre as it offers training with some of the UK’s leading coaches.

This centre is a World-class, dedicated 8 piste fencing salle provided by our host and partner organisation, Durham University. Air conditioned and fully sprung floor, the salle has FIE score boxes, 4 metal pistes and 4 training pistes. Head Coach is Prof. Laszlo Jakab who has coached Olympic, Paralympic, World, and National gold medallists! All our coaches are registered with British Fencing to ensure that qualification, DBS and Safeguarding checks are in place.
