The Newcastle Fencing Centre provides facilities for fencing and pistol shooting. All three forms of fencing are catered for: épée, foil and sabre, with 12 competition sized permanently wired pistes. The Trust possesses a limited stock of equipment which is available for use by beginners who have not yet acquired a full kit of their own. Participants range from as young as six years old in the “Kids Lets Fence” group through to veterans (with no upper age limit) and from complete beginners to elite athletes with national and international rankings.
The Centre supports both air and laser pistol shooting both as a standalone sport and as part of pentathlon. With expert coaching and guidance, all levels of skill and experience are accommodated from the beginner to elite athletes. Across all sports, new participants are warmly welcome and taster sessions are available upon request.
