River City Fencing is Back in Business!

River City Fencing fencers, families and friends:  River City Fencing is back in business.

You are welcome to join in the fencing fun.  Bring your COVID mask.  We are fencing with our COVID masks underneath the fencing mask.  This will reduce risks, and keep people healthy.

Guests and people wanting to try fencing…

We are not allowed to store “loaner equipment” on site.  We do have them, but you need to make “an appointment.”  Just text Mark Brandyberry and tell me if your fencer is “small, medium or large.”  Text Mark Brandyberry at 765-337-2001.  We can make arrangements for your visit.

Otherwise you are welcome to watch the club.  Come in and see if fencing is right for you or your children.








Monday, March 23, 2020

As of this evening River City Fencing is temporarily CLOSED. Governor Holcomb has declared a “stay at home order” and we will abide by it. Please, stay in touch. I expect this will continue until early April 2020.

Our River City Fencing Facebook page is easier to update, so watch that for immediate news. https://www.facebook.com/rivercityfencing/



River City Fencing is brainchild of Coach Will Read.  As member of Purdue University’s fencing team Mr. Read hoped to bring our sport to Greater Lafayette, Indiana.  Years later River City Fencing is managed by Mark Brandyberry and Paul Geraci.  River City Fencing is established as a leading source of fencing instruction and competition.  Many members are from elementary schools, high schools, home schools and Purdue University.
