The fencing club has a great performance record at Newcastle University.

Come and develop your skill and passion for fencing.

Fencing at Newcastle offers development pathways for a range of abilities. Many of our fencers have competed in the European and World Championships at cadet, junior and senior levels. In 2021/2022 season Newcastle had six fencers at international level. 

The Fencing Club has 2 teams (1 men, 1 women) fencing in the BUCS competition as well as at high level individual meets throughout the academic year. Training takes place at the purpose built Newcastle Fencing Centre with our GB’s fencing coaches.
