Mid-South Fencers Club

What is the status of Sport Fencing in Durham, North Carolina?

Our community panel of experts carefully guided us to online and outdoor instruction as being the Covid-safer way to serve our community during this pandemic. We’ve formed a Transition Team to lead us back inside as we recover! Our current offerings are a hybrid of in-person, online, indoors, and outside fencing.


We have pivoted and evolved our community, and we are offering 1:1 “double masked” lessons outside for all three Olympic-style weapons and German Longsword.


Since Fall 2020 we have been practicing at our temporary location, the Durham Bulls Athletic Park in the covered concourse. In Spring of 2021, we’ve added a second location at the Durham School of Ballet.


Read our Covid-Safer Plan and decide to join us today!


If you are new, welcome to a special sport community nestled in Durham, a vibrant community, part of the Research Triangle.


Registration this season is all via email info@midsouthfencersclub.org in order to better monitor for safety. Please browse this site and read about us. If you’ve got quick questions send us a text: 919-308-0800. You can call or email too.
