Fencing

Welcome to Swansea University Fencing Club!

We have 1 men's team and 1 women's team that compete in the BUCS Leagues, we enter BUCS Individuals and Welsh Universities.

As a club, we achieve great results. Last year the mens team won the league! The men's team also finished 3rd in the National Trophy Championships after winning it for the 2 previous years, one of only a handful of Universities to do so. After a dificult year the women's team finished 7th in the BUCS league. The men's team were nominated for Team of the Year due to the outstanding results.

When do we train?

Wednesday, 2-5pm

This is for the team fencers to prepare for BUCS matches! However, BUCS matches are on Wednesday so sometimes training is not on. If it is a home match, come down and support!

Saturday, 2-4pm

This is our main training session. Everybody is welcome.

Where is it?

We train in two different locations, but they are both located in the Sports Village. On Wednesday, we train in the Pavilion which is next to the main building. This is also where home matches take place. On Saturday, we train in the sports hall in the main building.

Costs?

  • £15 Sports Swansea membership
  • £20 annual Fencing membership
  • £1.50 per session for use of the hall and £2.50 for use of the fencing kit

We understand that Fencing is obviously not a very popular sport, and for a lot of you it will be the first time in doing the sport. This is why we will be running taster sessions, and on future Saturday sessions we will still continue coaching the sport so that you can understand and get better at the sport!

Taster session

Sunday October 2nd, 2-4pm

We charge these at the discounted price of £1.50 which none of goes to the Fencing club. This is a separate fee to pay for use of the sports hall which you will pay at the desk when entering the sports hall. The taster session will be located in the sports hall, and don't worry about paying for the annual membership until after these taster sessions and you're happy with joining the sport!

All coaching and equipment is supplied.
