UKC Fencing welcomes all students at our sessions. We run a beginners course for members with no or very little previous experience, lead by a professional fencing coach. Those with experience in fencing on the electrics are welcome to join the intermediate and experienced fencers on the pistes. Novices (our beginners) will also join everyone on the electrics before Christmas (about week 7 of the term) once you've mastered the basic techniques.

Session times
Tuesdays 8pm-10pm Hall 3
Wednesdays 5pm-7pm Hall 3
Sunday sessions 3pm-5pm Hall 3 (experienced/on electrics only)

Fencing is a good way to exercise, great for toning up your legs and upper body, and fun for giving you a good aerobic workout. We also have great teams competing in the BUCS league as well as great socials!

Membership includes:

  • Use of the electrical pistes and equipment

  • Use of club kit and everything you need to stay safe

  • Coaching by our professional fencing coach Peter Huggins in all three weapons (foil, epee and sabre)

  • Support from our lovely armourers who fix all the broken kit (and can teach you to do the same)

  • The chance to get BFA approved refereeing qualifications

  • Opportunity to compete for the university in BUCS league (We have a men's and a women's team)

  • Competitions for every level and ability (from novice comps, to national opens and beyond!)

  • Regular, fun socials throughout the year (pub crawls, fancy dress, black tie dinners, film nights and more)

We run free taster sessions for the first two weeks of term. This means you get free entry to the sports centre to access the halls and to the fencing itself. Please note that from 10th October onwards you will need membership to the fencing club (scroll down to buy it below) and have a sports centre membership (bronze, silver and gold all give you access,buy at
