About Us

Lost & Found at Fencers Club 
There are many unnamed items from before we closed due to COVID-19 in March. Since then, all uniforms that were left out have been laundered.
At this time, fencers are not allowed to leave anything hanging in the back corner, including uniforms and masks. All uniforms must be retrieved or put in a locker by Monday, 9/21. After that date, we will be donating items to our schools partnership program.

If you think that you had left an item out during this time, please email us at  
Reminder: Please be courteous at Fencers Club  

We are happy to have more fencers returning this month, but it is important that our space remains safe and under capacity.  
Unfortunately, over the past two weeks, fencers have been making reservations to fence in open bouting and group classes but are not showing up or not cancelling in a timely manner. As a result, other members are not able to fence.
Effective immediately, we will be implementing a penalty of $50 for any missed reservation. Fencers will not be able to make another reservation until the penalty is cleared.
Thank you for understanding and we are excited to see more of you soon!
