The Mid-South Fencers’ Club was founded in 2004 in order to further the Olympic sport of fencing in North Carolina and the Southeastern United States. The club’s coaching staff bring a modern international perspective to fencing in the area, and strive to build a sense of community and cooperation with other clubs throughout the region.
Mid-South coaches all three styles of the modern Olympic sport (saber, foil, and epee) with a specialization in sabre. In 2015 we added the historical Longsword. If you are passionate about fencing we have something in our program designed for you. Regardless of your age or experience, if you are looking for a new sport or something to test you mentally and physically, you have found the right place. We challenge, inspire, and create fencers! Plus, lucky for you, we excel at what we do!
Since the opening of our facility in downtown Durham in 2008, the club has grown to support two full-time fencing coaches, a fitness and yoga trainer, two additional part-time fencing coaches and a front desk staff. 24 different athletes within our club have obtained national medals, but results aren’t everything at our club. How we do things matters; we value team, trust, respect and sportsmanship. Come check us out, schedule a meeting to talk with a coach, and feel the excitement of the ultimate sport!
