The fencing club is one of the top performing sports clubs at Newcastle University.

Come and develop your skill and passion for fencing.

Fencing at Newcastle offers development pathways for a range of abilities. Our club has included promising beginners and established international competitors. Many of our fencers have competed in the European and World Championships at cadet, junior and senior levels.

The Fencing Club has three teams – two men, one 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 the club coached by our GB’s fencing coaches.
