Welcome to Sarum Swords

Sarum Swords is a friendly and competitive club which was established in 2013 to enable young people living in the Salisbury area to experience the Olympic sport of fencing. The club nurtures their skills in a safe and enjoyable environment. We provide structured sessions made up of a mixture of games, mobility exercises and blade skills to help children understand the sport whilst improving their balance and co-ordination.


Initially we use plastic masks and swords that are perfect for 6+ year olds. They are light, easy to use and great fun!

For older and more experienced children we progress them onto using metal foils in preparation for competitive fencing.

Fencing is fun!

Does your child fancy themselves as the next Jack Sparrow, a Musketeer or Gladiator? Then they are sure to love fencing.
