Club History


Originally set up as an evening class by Hilary Hammond (Nick Chapman’s first coach) the club was later run at Evesham Rowing Club by David Kirby.

Evesham Fencing Club

Nick Chapman joined the coaching staff in 1992. The club out grew the available space at the Rowing Club and moved to the Gym at Simon de Montfort Middle School, however even with an extension to the hall this still proved too small so David moved the Sabre Section to Stratford-on-Avon leaving Evesham as a ‘pointy weapon club’.

Increasingly the senior club became more and more Epee focused and Khelan Patel joined the coaching team. When Simon de Montfort Middle School closed in 2017 the club moved next door to its current location at The De Montfort School.
