Club History


Hunt-Roeder is not only one of the few specialist sabre clubs in Britain , but also one of the oldest. It was founded as Phoenix Fencing Club in the early 1960s, with the name being changed to Salle Roeder in 1982 by the eccentric French coach Francois Roeder. In 1998, the club became Salle Hunt-Roeder to reflect many years of hard work and expertise by coach Dennis Hunt.Following the addition of Kevin Nelson to the coaching staff, it was decided to introduce foil as an additional weapon in January 2010.

Salle Hunt-Roeder is affiliated to England Fencing/British Fencing.

Salle Hunt-Roeder offers the British Fencing Achievement Award Scheme for its Junior members (and not so junior members). Link to the Sabre Syllabus below.
