Fencing Equipment: Loaners and Purchasing

We provide everything to offer an enjoyable fencing experience!

Buying fencing equipment, especially for the first time, can be intimidating and difficult to decide.
All our trials receive full fencing gear at no cost.
For our new students’ convenience, we offer fencing gear rentals included in your monthly rate.

All beginner level memberships have a $20.00 rent-to-buy fee added, as follows:

  1. One-60-minute class: $145.00+$20.00 rental fee=$165.00
  2. Two 60-minute classes: $175.00 +$20.00 rental fee=$195.00
  3. Three 60-minute classes: $215.00+$20.00 rental fee=$235.00

Your rental can be purchased anytime during your first months of fencing ($200.00 value). After ten months, you own the gear.
If you stop fencing before this term you may bring the gear back, and your membership will end.


End your membership and return your loaned fencing gear

  1. Email us (info@olympiafencingcenter.com), with a request to cancel your membership.
  2. Wash your body items only (no mask or glove), dry them thoroughly, and bring them in a bag with a name label and the date of the return.
  3. You can hand it over to any coach present on the fencing floor or in the office.

All unwashed items are subject to a $20.00 fee.
We are not responsible for the unpacked items left around, with no name/date.
You must return your rental within ten days of canceling your membership.
There is a $200.00 security fee for lost or un-returned gear.

Here is a Fencing Tournament Checklist with what you need in a competition, and this is a comprehensive guide on how to care for your fencing gear: from weapon and body cords, to cleaning your mask, glove, and bodysuit.

If you prefer to buy your fencing gear yourself, there are many companies that you can purchase equipment from, online or over the phone. If you are looking for a specific item, you can shop around for it at various places, to find the best price.

We order our fencing gear from Blue Gauntlet. They offer a wide variety of Starter Sets that range from about $100 to about $200, depending on the number of pieces of equipment and quality but we recommend to those new to fencing to come and see us before buying. Also, orders can be placed through us, we measure and determine the right size, place the orders, and shipping fees are split by the number of people. Here is the sizing chart, if you’d like to order on your own.

We also created our own online store, where you can buy moisture-wicking cool mesh polyester T-shirts, a performance fabric that keeps you cool and dry, and has our club’s logo on it.

The prices run from $25.00 to $30.00, and you can even create your own design!

Club team warmups are available by request: info@olympiafencingcenter.com
