Welcome to Fencing Club Trekanten

 

Fencing club Trekanten offer classes in all three weapons; foil, epee and sabre


Rooted in the Danish tradition for creating associations built upon voluntary work, the club has evolved to become the largest and one of the most successful fencing clubs in Denmark, based on the same principles and values as when it was founded back in 1929.

 

Today, the club has around 250 members distributed on all age groups and levels.

Our sessions are running throughout the week on all weapons and we teach in both Danish and English, and we welcome beginners.

 

The setting is international, and the tone is informal – everyone should feel welcome and at home when training with us. We have our own facilities, with 10 permanent strips, strength & conditioning room, lounge area with TV, kitchen and a common work area with free WiFi.

 

“Dedication” is one of the primary values of Trekanten and it transcends into everything we do. We support all our athletes in becoming as skilled and successful as possible. We also make sure that all our coaches receive state of the art - high level education in fencing, physical training and teaching. 

 

In addition to training sessions, we also hosts international competitions and annual camps.

 

So, come join us, get your mind of work or studies, expand your skillset and social network – we will help you get started and learn an amazing sport.
