Established in 2000 as Hitchin Juniors, HFC now encompasses a thriving junior and adult club.


Main Club timings:


6:30 - 8pm    Juniors   Hitchin Town Hall

8 - 9:30pm    Adults    Hitchin Town Hall


7:30 - 9pm   Adults     St John's Community Centre


6 - 7:30pm   Juniors    Priory School


The session begins with a group warm up and footwork, followed by a class lesson and free fencing. For students up to 16yrs we follow the BFA Achievement Awards in the first year, and after that training is focussed towards local county and regional competitions.

Once you have completed a full beginners course you can progress to the main club.


On joining the main club, all fencers are required to purchase their own breeches & mask and become a full member of the British Fencing Association. 

Fencing equipment can be purchased from reputable suppliers such as Leon Paul. (See the Fencing Equipment page). 

To join the British Fencing Association visit

Full membership of the BFA will give you insurance cover allowing you to fence at competitions and clubs all over the UK. There are a number of regional competitions that members of Hitchin FC attend, which are a great opportunity to build confidence. See for new competitions coming up. 


Kit may be hired from the club directly, subject to availability.
