Where and when to find us
The Club meets in the gym at Edge Hill University, Ormskirk on Wednesday evenings between 8.00pm and 10.00pm throughout the year. The University is situated on the A570, 1/2 mile south of Ormskirk town centre.

There are, however, a few weeks when the gym is unavailable for fencing due to its use as an examination hall, usually two weeks in January, May and August. If you are planning to visit the Club at this time it is recommended that you contact us first to confirm that the Club is meeting.

See the map below for our location - zoom in using the controls provided or click on the link below the map to see a larger version. You may find the Google Maps Satellite option useful for seeing how to navigate around the campus but please be aware that the aerial images were taken before the new access road was opened in September 2012.

The following directions may be useful:
  • Use the new access road to the campus from the traffic lights about a quarter of a mile out of town from the old entrance.
  • Continue with the car park on your left and open fields on your right until you come to a roundabout.
  • Cross the roundabout so that you have the car park on your left and the all-weather football pitch on your right.
  • At the corner of the football pitch, turn right so that the pitch remains on your right and the athletics track is on your left.
  • At the end of the football pitch, bear slightly left and pass the Sporting Edge centre on your left.
  • Go down a small ramp towards the car park.
  • Before entering the car park, turn left then immediately left again.
  • The road bears right, past car parking spaces on your left. The gym is then ahead of you on the right.
  • There are car parking spaces at the side of the gym, but feel free to use any others if these are all occupied.
  • The entrance to the gym is on the far side of the building - the north-western side.
