Here's what our members are saying about being an adult beginner at Bay State Fencers:
"I’ve been fencing for 2 years and Bay State Fencers is my one and only club. They are very welcoming to new fencers, yet they are highly skilled and competitive. If you are an experienced fence looking for a club, or if you’ve never suited up, come join us for open fencing! You won’t be disappointed!" - Tori B.
"I signed up for classes & immediately fell in love. When the classes ended, I asked my friend to signed up with me. Both times I was a student I found it to be an incredible sport. The owner Stacy is a wonderful instructor. I highly recommend stopping by for a tour. Great cardio workout & it's fun." - Ronnie R.
