Welcome to the Gwent Sword Club Web Site


Gwent Sword Club currently operates at two venues in South-East Wales, with our fully trained coaches providing training to both experienced fencers and beginners through our programme of beginner courses.

Our Newport division runs on Monday nights at Rougemont School, Malpas Road, Newport NP20 6QB 19:00 till 21:00. 

Our Chepstow division runs on Friday nights during term time from 18:30 till 20:30 at Chepstow Leisure Centre, Welsh Street, Chepstow, NP16 5LX. (link to map)


NB: Club membership is £25 per calendar year and is now due for 2018. Without club membership, the 'associate member' rate is payable at club sessions and you have no voting rights at the AGM. Part-year membership is available at £2.50 per month or part-month remaining in the year. Please note that it is a requirement of Welsh Fencing that to be fully insured all club members should, in addition, be members of British Fencing - see www.britishfencing.com . Individual members are responsible for ensuring their BF membership is renewed on time.


Register for the next beginners' course at Newport - please e-mail diffordsatvirginmedia [dot] com for details. We can accommodate beginners at every Chepstow session. We welcome visiting fencers of all abilities to both our venues (see visitor rates below).
