Fencing is a safe and exciting sport that develops the skills of body and mind to work together for success. 

Our Values




What we do

From our base at the Marrickville PCYC, we train a community of young athletes and adults in sabre fencing. Our Club sessions are held every Thursday (5.00 - 7.30 pm) and Saturday (9.00 - 11.30 am). 

We also run fencing programs at local festivals, fairs, community events and schools across Sydney with a mission to promote and improve access to the sport. We've had experience with many different formats to suit your needs, including workshops, crash-courses, regular classes, demonstrations and more.

Who we are

Head Coach and Founder Jess Brooks is a nationally accredited foil and sabre coach. She is a current NSW sabre coach, an assistant Australian national coach and was a decorated Australian Team member.
