Trafford Sword Club’s Motto is:
"The Social Club with a Competitive Edge"
The club has an active social life; an infamous BBQ once a year, restaurant visits and other 'get togethers'. We also meet in the bar of the leisure centre for a drink and a chat every week after fencing. Within the fencing Salle we encourage a sense of sportsmanship combined with a competitive challenge for juniors and seniors alike.
The club is a mixture of social fencers (fencers who just enjoy the sport for its own sake) and competitive fencers, who compete at regional and national level.
