Fencing Club

Welcome to the Fencing Club

Fencing is fun, dynamic and fast-paced. It is a very sociable sport and a great way to meet new people both in Cardiff and from other universities. Our sessions include a full body work out, focusing on core strength - an excellent way to keep in shape! As well as working on speed, accuracy and building stamina to make you the best athlete you can be.

About Us:

The Cardiff University fencing club caters for all abilities, from complete beginners to Olympic hopefuls; we have a wide range of sparring partners that partake in recreational and competitive fencing. We run an all kit inclusive beginner course at the start of term. Everyone is welcome to come and try.

Sessions run on Mondays 5.30-7.30 & Fridays 7.30-9.30 in Talybont Sports Centre (Field Hall). 

Club events:

There are a range of competitions aimed at all levels throughout the year. These are available to all members, including BUCS, the London International Universities fencing tournament, Welsh Uni championships and many more.

There are also regular socials both in Cardiff and away, that are open to all. (Be prepared, there will be fancy dress!)
