Randall's World - advice, links, and pictures (including one we use for publicity - thanks Randall!)

Suppliers of Fencing Kit in the UK

Here are some web sites, which give an idea of what is available and what you might pay. Don't assume the cheapest price is always the best value for you, though. I would advise trying kit on before you buy - fencing kit is cut differently to high-street clothes! Note that some of the club coaches can arrange to bring kit to the club on request.

PBT UK - based near Guildford.  Talk to Ian (one of our coaches) if you want kit from PBT, as he will be able to save you postage costs - he may even have what you want in his van outside the club!

Allstar-Uhlmann in Slough

Leon Paul in London (old-established, but take a street-map to find it!)

Blades Brand UK - good value equipment by mail order, now has a shop in Slough

Sword Price Fighters - internet only with keen prices.  Note that British Fencing issued a statement on 7th March 2012 that clothing from certain now-discontinued Swordpricefighters ranges is "suspended", so take care if buying second-hand equipment. The British Fencing statement gives details and can be read at

Recommended Search Engines

These search engines are fast and comprehensive - and they find Guildford Fencing Club!

DuckDuckGo - has a "do not track" policy for your searches

Google, Microsoft and Yahoo - all fast and up to date. Google has taken over the once-useful DejaNews archive, but it's now full of spam.

I moved our website domain name in 2002 and - as happened two years previously - the search engines took weeks to catch up. Honourable exceptions were Google and NTL (now discontinued), which updated within 24 hours!
