Crawley Sword Club was established in 1954 to promote the sport of fencing. Geoff Griffin the founder of the club was a member of the British Academy of Fencing (provost) and was involved with the club until he passed away. We are a three weapon club, fencing: Foil, Epée, and Sabre.

Crawley Sword Club offers a friendly and welcoming environment to all who want to take up the sport of fencing. We are based at the K2 Leisure Centre in Crawley that is easily accessible from Sussex, Surrey and Kent. Training can be tailored to accommodate beginners and social fencers to the aspiring national contenders.

Crawley Sword Club has produced fencers of all standards including club, county, commonwealth and national fencers, across the entire age range from Junior to Veteran.

January Beginners Course

Places are available for the next beginners course. This course will be starting Monday 27th January and will run every Monday for 6 weeks from 7:00pm - 8:00pm. If you want to try out fencing and enrol on the course please contact Cheryl via the Contact form with your details by Friday 17th January.

Huge well done to all those that competed in the Sussex U14, U12, and Senior GB Cup Qualifier.
As a personal note, it was great to see a load of young fencers especially from the development class having fun at their first competition. Lots of positive fencing with room for improvement in the future!

Just a quick reminder about fencing over Christmas. There will be fencing as usual until Weds 18th December when we will be having festive fencing. On the 18th if you are an adult fencer please bring cake to share & if you are a younger fencer please bring something savoury. This will be the last day of fencing until Monday 6th January. 🤺🎄
