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.

Following the latest government announcement regarding ‘non-essential contact with each other’ today, we have taken the difficult but appropriate decision to close the fencing club until further guidance has been issued. Please can you pass this message on to fencers that do not have Facebook.

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!
