Welcome to South Yorkshire Fencing

South Yorkshire Fencing’s aim is to promote the Olympic sport of fencing in the South Yorkshire area. We do this in a number of ways, through coach development, referee training, club official CPD, and working with major events to achieve their legacy aims. We also set up and run a number of schools fencing programmes.

New High Performance Programmes for Sabre and Epee
Sabre programme lead by Belarusian 4 time Olympian (2000-2012) Dmitry Lapkes
Epee programme lead by Polish epee coach Miroslaw Poplawski
Athletes within the programme will be able to train 3 times a week (Monday Eve, Thursday Eve as well as Sundays), with sessions from
Sheffield Fencing Club,
Sheffield Sword Club,
and Sheffield Fencing Centre

Clubs
We are now in a ‘Post Olympic Era’ – This is a great time of opportunity for our sport, are we ready? Can we accommodate new people into our clubs, can we offer a good experience to our members, are we ready to ‘Inspire a Generation‘?
If you want to build capacity in your club, work towards swordmark, become a coach, develop as a coach, become a referee… Please get in touch, and we can help you to achieve your goals.
