Fencing at Loughborough is a friendly & sociable. We cater for professional, experienced and novice fencers so there really is something for everyone to get involved in.
Athletic Union Club
We have a wide of variety of club members and whether you are competing for your national team, want to pick up a new sport, or fit fencing in with your busy social and academic life, we have something on offer for you.
We have 2 men's and 2 women's teams in BUCS providing an opportunity for less experienced fencers to compete and develop new skills.
We run two sessions per week and have coaching for novices, so you can quickly learn the basics of any weapon (foil, epée or sabre) and if you are a more experienced fencer, the sessions will help fine tune your skills. We have plenty of equipment for beginners, the only thing you need to get started is your membership.
Throughout the year, there are plenty of competitions you can take part in. Including the Cambridge Winter, Merseyside Open, and BUCS Individuals.
Our teams also compete during the Winter term in competitions such as the Warwick Open, Leicester Open, Birmingham International, and the Senior National Championships.
Fencing is also available through the My Lifestyle initiative, where you can give the sport a go and have loads of fun at the same time.
Coaching and volunteering
Within most sports there are a range of sports volunteering roles and opportunities for you to get involved and gain experience in. This ranges from coaching and officiating to events, marketing and media and sport science support.
