24th June 2021 The club is very pleased to announce that sessions will resume from the 1st of September at our new venue which is the Sports Centre at Sarum Academy (one of our previous hosts). More details will follow soon.

1st September 2020 Regrettably, the prevalence of Covid-19 in the wider community has not yet abated to the level where the club can safely meet. The situation is under constant review and sessions will resume again once circumstances permit. Please ensure you are signed up to the mailing list in order not to miss out once sessions restart again.

16th March 2020 The club sessions have been suspended until further notice to help prevent further spread of Covid-19.

15th June 2019 The new Club Constitution which was approved at the AGM is now available online as a PDF.

1st May 2019 Today sees the start of the inaugural Geoffrey Russell Cup, a competition which runs throughout the summer term to find the club champion for this season. Arrange a fight with another club member (all electric, presided and timed) and record the results in the match log. The top four points scorers by the final club session will fence off for the title. Good luck!
