The art of sword fighting has been practiced for thousands of years and continues today in the modern sport of fencing.  One of only four sports to have been at every Olympic Games since 1896, fencing requires technical ability, timing and discipline as much as physical fitness. 

The fencing club at Brookes offers the opportunity to learn, train and compete in all three weapons (foil, epee and sabre) with all equipment provided for beginners. Fencers compete in the BUCS league, BUCS indivduals and also have the opportunity to compete in other local and national events.

You can find our Fencing club on Instagram @OxfordBrookesFencing.
