We’re opening the new Sydney Sabre Centre in late May 2022. In the meantime, we run lessons at our outdoor piste in Drummoyne on Saturdays and – via two of our coaches and instructors – to a branch in Revesby on Wednesday evenings. Please contact us or check back later for details.
The first Sydney Sabre Centre opened on 26 May 2012 at 112 Parramatta Road, Stanmore. Our facilities included 11 pistes, a gym, hire equipment for up to 40 people, storage for members’ equipment and bags, and an armoury-forge. We had a lounge with wi-fi to relax or get some work done between bouts. We were in the process of opening up a cafe and a bar; then COVID-19 hit.
We closed the Centre in September 2021 during the last Sydney lockdown; the landlord had decided it was time to demolish the building and redevelop as apartments. We moved lessons to outdoors, including on one of the metal competition pistes next to a community park, the armoury to a converted garage workshop, and the store online.
The new centre is currently under construction. It’s on Victoria Road in Drummoyne, and it’s going to be altogether a more refined experience than the first model. After the inevitable stream of ludicrous construction delays, we can now say with confidence that it will open in September, 2022.
