Who we are

Sydney Sabre was founded in December 2011 by a small group of friends who were hooked on fencing. We wanted to create the first dedicated training centre for sabre in Australia. Our venue was opened in Stanmore on the 26th of May 2012, and we receive hundreds of visitors each week to our classes, training sessions and tournaments.

As we’ve grown, we’ve developed a reputation as a welcoming and inclusive community and a great place to build friendships.

Sydney Sabre also hosts a sister organisation, The Sydney Sabre Club, an association of competitive fencers training at Sydney Sabre. Athletes representing The Sydney Sabre Club have consistently achieved podium finishes at state, national and international events. We provide support, advice and mentoring for athletes, coaches and officials at every stage of their career.

We aim to promote and expand sabre fencing in Sydney, and around the world. We’d be delighted to have you train with us, whether you’re a former pro or just want to give it a go.
