Very experienced or utterly at sea, the Fencing Club would love to see you join us on a Tuesday evening at 8pm-10pm in Falmer Sports Complex. Everyone is welcome, kit is provided (though if you do own kit please bring it), and our more experienced team members help our excellent local coach Angela Goodall with our coaching. Turn up in loose fitting trousers, sports-friendly top and trainers. No shorts or flip-flops please! 

For those interested in competetive fencing, we have 1st and 2nd teams for both men and women which rotate around the BUCs circuit at an advanced or intermediate level. This is an excellent way for advanced fencers to keep in shape as well as for intermediate and beginner fencers to gain experience in competitive fencing. We also send some fencers to international events (our favourite one is in Paris) as well as hosting our very own Brighton Open! 

But we're not all competitive. If you want to just come along and learn how to swordfight with panache as a way to destress from your uni life, it would be lovely to have you! Fencing is a unique and fascinating sport that excercises both the mind and body, the perfect 'new thing' everybody goes to uni to try. 

Hope to see you soon!
