Welcome to The University Of Sheffield Fencing Club
University fencing club that caters to all levels
Membership available on the Sport Sheffield website or come to one of our sessions to see if the club is right for you and then we can explain our membership options in detail.
To provide a fun and inclusive environment for fencers of all levels to learn and train. To provide a good level of teaching to all our members. For our BUCS teams to do the best they can and win their leagues.
We have three types of session available. Beginner - This is for people who have never fenced before or have only fenced a few times previously. We will teach the basics of fencing in the form of fencing games, footwork, a few blade work exercises and that is usually followed by some free fencing. Advanced - This is for people who have been fencing for a significant time and would consider themselves proficient. This normally consists of footwork followed by some free fencing, with the option of some individual coaching available. Team selection for the Men’s and Women’s BUCS teams happen at these sessions as well. Intermediate/Free Fencing - This session is normally used an extra session for the advanced fencers, which mostly consists of free fencing but once the beginners have learnt the basics we like to integrate them with the advanced people at this session.
