About Us

New Ash Green epee club was formed in 2009 by British international fencer Taran Nicholls, and has since gone from strength to strength, with many of our fencers competing in regional competitions. Two of our fencers have gone on to win the South East regional epee competition.

The club provides all the necessary safety equipment and fencing gear. Each week we have a warm-up game, followed by technical coaching and then practice fencing bouts.

What We Do

The club caters for both beginners and experienced fencers. Whether you are an aspiring professional fencer, a fencer wishing to improve your skills, or someone who just wants to try something new, New Ash Green epee club is the place for you. We believe that fencing should be both fun and competitive! The club provides high quality training which not only improves your fitness, but also mental focus, coordination, self-discipline and emotional control.

The club meets at: New Ash Green Village Hall, Longfield, DA3 8HH on Wednesday evenings from 6.00pm – 8.00pm.
