A Warm Welcome
... to the Farnborough Wargames Society home page!
We hope you enjoy our Society's web-site and contribution to the hobby.
The club was founded in 1972 by Mick Fuller and currently has about 40 active members. We play all periods from Ancients to Modern and even have an active Fantasy following.
The club hosts a show annually called "Valhalla", with traders, participation games and competitions - see the Valhalla page for more details.
We meet on Friday evenings at Our Lady Help of Christians Hall, Sherborne Road, Farnborough.
We also have all-day games on the last Sunday of the month at Farnborough Bowls Club, The Green, 23A Canterbury Road, Farnborough
See "Contact & Visit Us" for a map.
All ages and visitors are welcome, and you don't need your own figures - members are always happy to let you join in a game. See the Galleries for pictures of the society in action on Friday evenings.
We have a well stocked scenery and terrain cupboard, so no need to bring all your hills, roads, rivers, woods and buildings - just rock up and play.
Many rule sets have been played, are played and will be played! We make up our own too - see the Club Resources page.
If you'd like to get in touch, see Contact & Visit Us.
Ready to join? Membership currently costs £15 per annum (renewable in January) with additional table fees of £3 per night on Friday Nights and £5 on Sundays.
Non-members are free for their first night and then charged £5 per night. These fees are the same for all ages.
Note: There are a few members under the age of 18. The Society is not classed as a "Child Care Organisation" under the Protection of Children Act and so players and visitors under the age of 18 must be accompanied at all times
Some members are not letting the lockdown stop their gaming:
A remote Saga game from Graham and Alex:
A socially distanced garden game of Muskets & Tomahawks from Dom & Jonathan
