Fencing

Brief Description of Club Activities

One of the most successful Performance Sports clubs at Team Newcastle, with several international level athletes and coaches who work with beginners and advanced fencers alike.

For the 2017/18 season we will field 6 teams (3 Men's and 3 Women's), continuing the successes from last year. Highlights include:  

  • Men's and Women's 1st Teams competing in Premier North, with the Men's Team placing in the top 3 and Women's in the top 5;
  • Women's 2nd and 3rds both competing in North 1A;
  • Men's 2nd Team finishing 2nd and Men's 3rd Team finishing 5th in Northern 2B.

The Club also saw individual success at BUCS 2017 with:

  • Top 3 finish in Women's Epee;
  • Top 8 finish in Men's Sabre; and
  • Top 16 finish in Men's Epee.

This culminated in us scoring the highest number of BUCS points of any sport at Newcastle University. 

The Club is open to anyone: we cater for all 3 weapons and all abilities are welcome.
