Fencing in Ostrava has long tradition. The first information about activities date back to 1928, when fencers practiced in Sokol Ostrava 1. There were several fencing clubs in Ostrava, namely TJ Baník Ostrava, TJ VOKD Poruba and TJ NHKG during historical eras.
Today’s, all fencers are organized in Šerm Ostrava club, which was established as union all existing clubs in 2002. We are training in the gym of ZŠ Ukrajinská Ostrava-Poruba, where the fencing practice hall is built. With its space and equipment it counts to one of the biggest in Czech republic.
The main target of the sport fencing club Šerm Ostrava is work with young fencers. We are focused on foil fencing. Fencers from our club are often well ranked in national roster, and regularly attend the World championships and World cup series. For older fencers we organize recreational fencing. Fencing with us is here for everyone who likes the fencing sport or willing to try it.
The first practice is scheduled September 3rd at 17:30. The practice then continues on regular schedule. For additional practice follow emails or contact coaches.
WARNING: Since 1.9.2016 all free fencing is only in full fencing suite (incl standard fencing breeches)!!!.
