Evening, Does anyone fence for recreation? (please all now take the time to get jokes about the one you did in your back garden and made a great job of out of your system). Iâm looking for something to take up in my free evenings that will hopefully be a bit less repetitive than running and thought that fencing looks interesting enough and hopefully quite enjoyable. Looking at Edinburgh Fencing Club at the moment but was wondering if I could get some insights from those that already participate regarding: Age: Iâm 35. Too old? Equipment required (swords, clearly) and cost? Events? Any and all help appreciated. Piss takes tolerated with a sigh.
