Here at the University of Leicester Fencing Club we are proud to one of the highest intake clubs where the majority of the members are brand new to the sport when they start of with us. We foster an amazing team spirit, where a willingness to make mistakes and indulge in new experiences stands as the backbone of our innovative styles and national acclaim. This along with our Olympic trained coaches and great social atmosphere lead to a fantastic club culture and unmissable social scene! Add this to our mixture of high ranking performance and great university experience creates the perfect spirit for all; no matter how you’re looking to get involved with fencing: whether it be for a fun new hobby, to join in with one of the best university fencing teams in the country, or just for amazing nights out!
The Club is also proud to be the universities best performing BUCS club for over 4 years; with our first and second teams regularly competing all over the country in all three weapons – Saber, Epée, and Foil. To top that off, we are also the first and only Team Leicester club in the BUCS premiership!
