Have you always wanted to do fencing but never had the chance? Are you an experienced fencer looking to refine your skills? Is this the first time you have ever heard about fencing? If any of that is true, you've come to the right place. Fencing as a sport originated from the development of swordsmanship for duels and self-defence, and is one of the five activities that have been played in every modern Olympic Games.
Coventry University Fencing Club, founded in 2004, aims to promote Fencing across campus and accommodate all Coventry University students, no matter if they are an experienced fencer or a beginner who wishes to learn the sport.
If you are an experienced player, feel free to drop by a session to fence with us; if you are a beginner who wants to learn how to fence, all you have to do is join one of our sessions—we'll teach you the basics and train you in the weapon of your choice. Just remember to come in gym attire! (Shorts are not allowed)
We are kit included, so there is no need to buy your own equipment! We practice all three weapons: foil, épée and sabre.
We have weekly training sessions taking place in Priory Sports Hall (CV1 5FJ) during term time:
The Club received the Best Small Club Award for 2013-14.
We are the Fencing club at Coventry University. Hit first, always start it and run with pointy things. Do everything your parents told you not to.
We have training sessions three times a week for all three disciplines (Epee, Foil & Sabre) of the Olympic sport of Fencing, and head to the pub afterwards for that hard earned refreshment and catch up with your mates!
Fencing is the only real sport, all others are pointless.
Seriously though, Fencing is a great way to exercise without feeling like you're working out. It's the safest Olympic sport you can do at Coventry and all things considered, great fun!
Every year we take part in one of the most prominent sports event of Coventry University, the "VARSITY" where our club goes against the University of Warwick's Fencing club. As we come out of covid and return to normal we hope to return to competitions throughout the region and country, and develop the club to have a BUCs team in the coming year.
It's not all work work work. As well as training we regularly have amazing socials and parties, why not come along and join in the fun!
