The Marrickville Marauders is a fencing club run by nationally accredited coach, Jess Brooks, at Marrickville West Primary School on Mondays and the Marrickville PCYC on Friday afternoons. This club focuses on developing young fencers from the age of 8 onwards in a fun, challenging and supportive environment. Fencing is a safe and exhilarating sport that develops coordination, balance, agility and focus. Fencing is often considered the ‘physical chess’, which requires the mind and body to work together in order to succeed! Our primary focus is sabre but we are in the process of introducing a beginners’ foil class.
