Fencing in the Park
COVID-19: Some of us fenced outdoors, with cloth masks, social distance, and portable lights, well into winter 2020. For updates, join our email list.
In summer, when the sun sets late, some Salle DeCesare fencers may unofficially get together at Serra Park in Sunnyvale on Thursday evenings. The concrete skating area is great for fencing strips.
Fencers and friends start arriving at 7 PM to start fencing by 7:30 PM. Fencing lasts until the sun goes down or the sprinklers come on. Conversation often continues well after we pack up.
All fencers are welcome! Any skill level or background. All 3 weapons. (But kids should be with parents.) Bring your electric equipment, if you have it. If you don't, don't worry; we'll fence standard! It's all in good fun in the park.
We take a pot-luck approach. Nothing is required! Everything is appreciated. Some bring their dinners. Some bring chips, vegetables, cookies, fruit, cupcakes, nuts or other treats to share. Some bring nothing, and we love them, too. Beer and wine can be popular (don't forget cups!) with those over the appropriate age.
Serra Park is at 730 The Dalles AVE, Sunnyvale, CA 94087. Come in toward the park building and you'll see the skating area where we gather. Get specific directions from:
These casual park gatherings are informal, unofficial, and undertaken at each individual's own risk. They are not in any way endorsed, overseen or affiliated with the Salle as a group, the FUHSD Adult School classes, Serra Park, the city of Sunnyvale, or any other entity.
