Westdale Fencing Club was formed in December of 2001 by Steve Howell and Ranil Sonnadara. We are registered with, and sanctioned by, the Ontario Fencing Association, and welcome fencers of all ages (over 8) and levels of experience. In 2009, Westdale Fencing Club was appointed as a 'Regional Community Development Centre' by the Ontario Fencing Association. The Regional Community Development Centres are a series of well established, highly experienced fencing clubs in various regions of Ontario, selected for the RCDC program for their records of excellence in the delivery of grass roots programs, and their capacity for growth in the future. These centres are recognized as offering quality programming based on healthy child development and the principles of Long Term Athlete Development. RCDCs serve as a hub for clubs, coaches, and community members to get training, share ideas and acquire new skills and expertise.
