Once you have completed your initial beginners course you will be invited to become a member of the Pembroke Fencing Club. We offer group lessons to beginners and intermediate fencers. The sessions are structured and include warm-up, footwork, blade work, and free fencing.

To become a member of Pembroke Fencing Club you will need to pay a one-off joining fee of €25 followed by the annual subscription once you start training. The joining fee is applied to the first term’s Membership Fee. This fee includes a club T-shirt. It requires completing a membership application form and paying the membership fee shown below.

Fencers from other clubs are more than welcome to attend Club Nights as guests, provided that they pay the “per session” fee shown below.

All fencers, both members and non-members, must have a Fencing Ireland competition license valid for the current season, available here.
