After nearly ten years at West Hill School in Stalybridge Manchester Fencing Club will be moving on the 19th February. They will be sharing premises with Marshall Fencing Club at the sports hall of the Collective Spirit School, Butterworth Lane, Oldham OL9 8DX.
Coaches Steve Glaister and Colin Walls will be moving with the club providing continuity for the foilists and épéeists from Manchester and additional coaching to those from Marshall who wish to take advantage of them.
The move will allow Manchester to operate three nights a week instead of a single session.
Both clubs share a similar outlook, being open and encouraging visitors from other clubs to come along and fence with the aim of improving the sport in the region, not just Manchester and Marshall.
