WELCOME TO THE UNIVERSITY OF NOTTINGHAM FENCING CLUB!
We are a friendly, fun and hardworking club, who welcome fencers of any ability- whether you are a complete beginner, an advanced fencer or someone who has a foil rusting in the back of their cupboard and fancies giving it another go! For beginners, we offer comprehensive training that will introduce you to the world of fencing, without throwing you into the deep end straight away. For the more advanced and BUCS teams, we have excellent training as well as strength and conditioning sessions to keep you in tip top shape. We have three men’s and two women’s BUCS teams and cater for all three weapons (foil, epee and sabre).

HOW TO JOIN
See us at Welcome Fair or sign up online. We will be having taster sessions, so if you would like to “try before you buy” come along!
We charge £60 for team fencers, £50 for regular fencers (not in teams) and £40 for SB members. This fee covers coaching, equipment hire, use of the sports centre and insurance. As well as this you will require a University Sports Membership.
We have regular socials, with both alcoholic and non-alcoholic events, which are always memorable in one way or another! As well as these, we have end of term formals which are our opportunity to dress up in non-fencing attire and spend a memorable night with friends! After training on Mondays it is traditional to have a drink (or three) with the club.
