Match vs. Swindon (22 March 2022)

On Tuesday 22nd March, we will be visiting Swindon Fencing Club for a match instead of fencing in Oxford. There are opportunities for both junior and senior fencers to take part, and we’ll try to make it as inclusive as possible.

Juniors: Please try to be ready to fence at 19:00 in the hall (there is a junior beginners class running from 18:00, so people will be there).

Seniors: Please aim to be ready to fence by 20:00. We’ll hope to get foil, epee and sabre together somehow providing that we manage to send enough fencers.

There will be NO FENCING IN OXFORD on 22nd March.

The Swindon Club is located at The Deanery CE Academy off Peglars Way, Swindon SN1 7DA.
Use Sat Nav to find your best route. Or use What Three Words ///guess.simply.tame (this is the car park). I have added a route from the A420, this is only a suggestion avoiding the centre of Swindon.

When you approach the academy go past the The Hall & Woodhouse pub (on your left). It looks like you are heading into no-mans land, but if you follow the road round the back of the academy it will bring you into the car park.

Once you have parked up use the Community Entrance and follow the signs to the sports hall. Basically go through the doors and turn left, the hall is directly in front of you.

Swindon Club’s website has a useful map http://swindonfencing.org.uk.gridhosted.co.uk/about/
