“Paul Davis Fencing Academy is a fencing family” – we create environments that foster friendship, respect, hard work and reward success. We create sessions that are fun, engaging, and energetic and provide a service that is the same for all. We use fencing as a tool to develop a child’s wellbeing and contribution to their local community. Fencing is a cross-curricula sport that utilises skills sets like Maths, English, French, Analytical ability, Communication, fair play and leadership to name but a few along with healthy living and regular exercise.

Paul Davis Fencing Academy (PDFA) is a multi-award team having been awarded, Team of the Year, Coaches of the Year (Male and Female), Disability Coach of the Year, Volunteer of the Year U21, and Elite Athlete of the Year. Team PDFA has been inspiring the local community since 2009.

My son has been fencing with PDFA for two years now and truly loves it, looking forward to all the sessions. The coaching, support - above and beyond the norm - enthusiasm and friendliness have all contributed to this. Highly recommended
