Pembroke Fencing Club offers a unique party experience for your child’s birthday. No experience required! Let their imagination run wild to create a great adventure through this Olympic sport. Our professionally trained staff will teach your party guests the sport of Olympic fencing in a safe and fun environment. We provide all the equipment needed (jackets, masks, and fencing foils) for a non-stop sword fighting birthday extravaganza. We’ll suit everyone up in jackets and masks, teach the basics of fencing and play group fencing games. With team games and fun props, your child’s party is sure to be one to remember. We provide one or one and a half hours of fencing fun at your home. If you do not have the room for the fencing event, we can organize to hire the hall or you can yourself find the hall.
Firstly, the instructor shows the children how to stand, move, attack and defend (fencing style). Finally, they are shown target areas and safety. Next, they are suited up in the fencing gear and then they begin the fencing games. The games are played one against one and group against a group. Choose from the packages below or contact us to discuss your individual requirements.
Our parties are designed for two different group ages:
The Musketeers Adventure – for kids 6 to 10.
60-90 minutes of fencing games and sword-fighting entertainment for everyone in a real fencing club environment.
For the little ones, we’ll start with a fun warm-up game and an interactive lesson on how to move like a fencer.
The kids will learn then about the fencing equipment and get the chance to suit up in real fencing gear.
This is a great time for girls and boys with a sense of adventure and a love of swords.
This package gives you the option to use, instead of real fencing gear, the special fencing playsuits, lighter and easier to manage, for the little ones.
Knights in White – for 10 to 16 years old
If your son or daughter keeps bugging you about trying fencing, Knights in White is exactly what you’re looking for – fun and exciting, the feeling of being a real fencer on the strip, facing your opponent (and earning your pizza slice right after!).
We’ll begin with a short introduction to fencing, basic rules, strategy and actions.
Young aspiring fencers will try target practice, drills and bouts.
In addition to our fun Birthday Parties, our club offers Fencing Parties for both kids and adults, for a rate of 20.00 euro per person, for a minimum of 8 people for 1,5 h private group instruction, including basic rules, score touch system, equipment and fencing bouts (matches) – hours of fun, being active and trying something new!!
