Fencing Sports Club

Warwick Fencing - The only place on campus where you can stab your friends with a sword! First session is always free!

Completely new to the sport? Welcome to fencing! No need to buy equipment to join the club and no experience necessary. Our coach runs a beginners course in terms 1 and 2.

Have you fenced before? Great! We provide 3 weapon coaching and have a men's team and a women's team that compete in BUCS leagues.

We encourage everyone to compete in local and national competitions with other members of the club, however there's no pressure to compete. We run our very own beginner's competition in November (National Novices) and are planning to run our 3 weapon fencing open the next academic year as well.

Socials and charity events are run year-round by our Social Secretaries so you'll be sure to make lots more friends to fence!

You don't need to be a member for the first 2 weeks!
