The club was formed in 1989 and is a member of the British Fencing Association, Which includes public liability insurance.

Individual membership, which includes personal insurance, is required when a fencer has been a member of Trafford sword club for 3 months.

All three weapons - Foil, Epee and Sabre are taught and coached at the club from beginner to international level and all coaches are trained by the British Fencing Association and/ or the British Academy of Fencing.

Trafford Sword Club’s Motto is:

"The Social Club with a Competitive Edge"

The club has an active social life; an infamous BBQ once a year, restaurant visits and other 'get togethers'. We also meet in the bar of the leisure centre for a drink and a chat every week after fencing.  Within the fencing Salle we encourage a sense of sportsmanship combined with a competitive challenge for juniors and seniors alike.

The club is a mixture of social fencers (fencers who just enjoy the sport for its own sake) and competitive fencers, who compete at regional and national level.
