CLUB OF THE YEAR 2018
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.
Foil is the lightest of the three weapons, points are scored by hits from the tip of the Foil onto the torso of the opponent’s body.
Epee, the heaviest of the three weapons, points can be scored by hits to the entire body area of the opponent by hits from the tip of the Epee.
Sabre, unlike Foil and Epee, scores points by striking the edge of the blade against any part of the body above the waist.
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!
Training sessions typically end with a trip to our sponsor, The Happy Man, just outside the main entrance to the university.
We also host frequent socials including themed nights out, Topgolf, film nights, pub crawls and pre-drinks for SU events. There’s always something to look forward to!
