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 further training in addition to any training they may get from fencing at the club they represent competitively.

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 4 metal pistes and 4 training pistes..

Alongside our Fencing training we will seek to provide a number of (free) sessions on topics of interest to fencers and parents of junior fencers: we will seek your views on what sessions would be most useful but topics that have been suggested already include:
• Junior Competitions – what to expect and how to support
• Progression to Cadets (and beyond)
• Introduction to the Regional Academy programme (of British Fencing)
• Nutrition
• Sports psychology and mental preparation/Meditation
• Strength and Conditioning
