Fencing

 

 

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).

Gold (£60) is for all team members and any members who have regular one to one lessons and/ or borrow club kit. If you are a beginner and you love fencing and want to join a team, do not fret, there is an add-on membership fee (£10) so you get get stuck into BUCs sword wielding!

SOCIALS

We have regular socials, with both alcoholic and non-alcoholic events, which are always memorable in one way or another!  As well as this, we have end of term formals which is our opportunity to dress up in non-fencing attire! After training on Fridays, it is traditional to have a drink or three at the Rose and Crown pub or mooch.
