Any of you good people able to suggest a sabre club near Burton, please? Nearest I can find are in Nottingham or Leicester.

Cheers, Mark.

Being biased towards West Midlands, while I don't wish to decry Nottingham or Leicester, 18 or 10 miles closer to you (respectively) is:

STAFFORD SWORD CLUB Beaconside Sports Centre, Staffordshire University, Beaconside, Stafford -
Contact Paul Smythe 07736 156975
Weapons: Foil Epee Sabre
Coach: Mike Ray
Men & Women - Wed 19.00-21.00

Mike is a sabre coach - have had the odd lesson from him, and enjoyed it, but tastes differ :)

Also there are clubs in Stone, Sutton Coldfield and (I think) Stoke.

Check the BFA site's club list (http://www.britishfencing.com/clubs_via_region.htm) if you need more details.

Hope this helps.

There is a club in Hathern which is not too far from burton. Its near sutton bonnington. Don't know any details but have heard that it is ok. Probably on BFA website. Failing that I know someone who can find out the details for you. Oh, its just off the M1 by the way.
