Bill Gatewood, founder of Dolphin Fencing Club, has passed away on the 13th January.
We are a friendly, relaxed club based in Crosby near Liverpool where we specialise in Foil but also practice Epee and Sabre. Fencers of all levels are welcome so if you a beginner looking to start fencing or an experienced fencer just passing through then you more than welcome to come along.
Our evenings typically consist of:
- Simple warm up / stretching exercises
- Footwork practice
- Group practice / drill sessions
- Coaching either on a one-to-one basis or in small groups
- Free fencing and pool fights
Absolute beginners are always encouraged to join us. Our beginners courses for juniors and adults are run on a regular basis, typically once each term, to encourage new blood into the sport.
Our courses aim to achieve at least Level 1 of the British Fencing achievement awards scheme, and also a look at refereeing.
We also welcome people to visit and watch before committing to a beginners course.
