About us

Welcome to Royal Holloway Fencing Club. Everyone is welcome with any level of experience, from national team members to absolute beginners – don't worry about it!

Fencing is a great way to de-stress whilst improving your overall fitness. We take new people on throughout the year so come along for a session and have a go!

We provide coaching in all three weapons; Foil, Epee and Sabre. Most fencers start fencing with Foil as it allows an easy transition into the other weapons, but if you want to learn a particular weapon let us know!

We train both competitively and noncompetitively. So, whether you want to train towards a place on the Club Teams, or simply fence as a social and energetic sport – you can do so!

Our training sessions are on Friday 8-10 pm at the sports hall on campus.


Purchasing a membership to our club will give you access to in-person training and all the kit you’ll need to start fencing.

Your membership fee goes towards paying for new kit and kit repairs, coaching and costs of transport for BUCS fixtures. As a member, you’ll get the opportunity to learn a new fast paced and fun sport.

You’ll also get the chance to meet an amazing group of dedicated individuals that will hopefully become your friends for life.

Events and Activities

Over the course of next year we will host a number of events including:

  • Training weekly in all three weapons (Foil, Epee and Sabre)
  • Competing in friendly and competitive competitions, including BUCS.
  • Regular pub trips and other socials.

The committee is really excited to welcome new members to try out the great sport of Fencing. We welcome all levels of fencers, from people who have never picked up a weapon to fencers who fence internationally.
