ABOUT US

Our Story

Since our founding in 1996, Galveston Fencing Club has offered introductory classes into the sport of fencing, and the opportunity for fencers of all ages and skill levels to meet for fun and friendly competition. We primarily fence epee and foil, but sometimes have saber going on, too. We sponsor three tournaments a year that include events for both adults and youth and novice events for fencers with less than one year experience. We meet in the gymnasium or cafeteria at O'Connell College Preparatory High School in Galveston, Texas.
