IFC Mission

IFC meets at Lions Memorial Park

To promote and teach the Olympic sport of fencing to students of all ages and skill levels and provide a friendly venue for members to practice their sport.

History

The Illinois Fencers Club is a member operated non-for-profit sports association that has been serving beginning, recreational, and competitive fencers for more than 40 years. It has grown from a place where senior fencers would practice and have a good time to a full service club with a youth program, adult classes, and free fencing for all our members.

IFC meets in the lower level of the Mount Prospect Park District's Lions Recreation Center, 411 S Maple St, Mount Prospect, IL, three blocks from the METRA station.
