Juniors

Salle Paul Juniors are all fencers under the age of 20 who are novice to advanced level.  As young fencers progress from their beginner courses, they are streamed to join existing group sessions to help develop their confidence and skills.  They can progress to competition level or can continue to enjoy developing their fencing for fitness and fun.

Young existing fencers, can join one of Salle Paul’s group sessions on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesdays or Thursdays which include group warm-up, footwork and then sparring in small groups supervised by one of our fully qualified coaches.  See our Members’ Timetable for session times.

Our Junior membership is also available to Students under the age of 25 who are studying full-time for their first University or further education course.

Beginner fencers aged 13-17, and those doing Duke of Edinburgh awards, are invited to join the club as a Junior and learn to fence  in our Wednesday sessions from 7.00-8.30pm.

What does Junior membership cost ?

Salle Paul Junior membership is £45 per month, which includes full and unlimited use of the fencing salle on Mondays to Thursdays, Strength & Conditioning training sessions on Tuesdays and/or Thursdays, use of the club Olympic-standard weights area and one 1-2-1 lesson per month with a Senior Foil Coach.  Additional lessons can be bought for just £10.

(Payments are taken on the first of  each month by direct debit from a debit or credit card.  There is no additional joining fee or annual contract and members can stop the next month’s payment by giving 10 days notice by email.  Lessons not taken cannot be carried forward to the next month).

What are the session times ?

There are different sessions to suit fencers’ ages and levels.  Please see our Members timetable for details, or email sallepaul@leonpaulfencingcentre.com for advice.

Existing fencers under 20 are welcome to just come along with their fencing kit and just join in (kit is available to borrow but please remember that club foils are generally used by our beginners so might not be up to the standard that more advanced fencers might expect).
