Return to Activity guidance from British Fencing
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.
Contact the club at firstname.lastname@example.org
The club consists of 2 performance teams; 1 men's and 1 women's who both compete in BUCS competition. We then have a development setup for social members.
Training takes place in the Fitness Studio at the Centre for Sport in Headington for Semester 1 (Monday 14th September - Sunday 6th December):
If you want to represent #TEAMBrookes, give a new sport a go, or just find out more, then the best place to be is at this year's online Fresher's Fair - taking place on Friday 18 September.
