Maryland Fencing Club has trained nationally ranked fencers. Come see what fencing is like at their open house Saturday, Sept. 4


The Maryland Fencing Club got its start when head coach Greg Paye taught a beginner fencing class for the non-credit division of Harford Community College in 2007 and 2008. He built up a following and with his wife, Harford county native Heidi Paye, decided to move the club it its current location at 3011 Emmorton Rd. Abingdon (next to Rita’s and the Greenery). The club has grown into a successful, full time business, which usually includes 50 members and 20 beginner students. Their top fencers include 2010 Junior Olympic fencers Marina Farrugia (Bel Air), Morgan Jones (Havre de Grace), and James Mews (Churchville), 2010 Youth-12 fencer Gianni Cappelletti (Abingdon) who finished the 2009-2010 season ranked 36th in the country, and 2010 nationally ranked Veteran fencers Jim Hampshire (Pylesville), Heni Misciagna (Perryville), Marty Miscianga (Perryville), and Greg Paye (Bel Air).
