Fencing

King’s Fencing has grown over the last 14 years at both King’s and Junior King’s to support the training of over 170 fencers each week. The success stories coming from our small and dedicated club are remarkable, with a long history of representation at International, Olympic and Commonwealth levels. We are now completing a significant development, which will propel King’s into the top three fencing venues in the UK.

To build on our success, King’s has chosen to focus on fencing in a new indoor sports facility at the School’s Malthouse site. Phase 1 of this facility includes:

  • 18 underfloor Fencing pistes, including 8 stainless steel competition pistes
  • wall mounting scoring apparatus
  • storage and changing facilities
  • walking distance of high-speed train link to London
  • on-site catering and bar facilities

Phase 2 will see the addition of a mezzanine to accommodate spectators

This installation is unique in a school in the UK, and will be the third biggest in England, allowing 36 fencers to bout at one time. Following several recent moves, this development provides a permanent home for Fencing for the foreseeable future, with many more successes to come.

To date, we have raised three quarters of our Phase 1 campaign target of £150,000. To find out how you can help us fully fund this facility, please email the Director of Development, Kate Chernyshov kec@kings-school.co.uk.
