We provide an opportunity for UEA students to take part in the fast-paced combat sport of Fencing. Beginners, experienced, advanced or social fencers are all welcome and have access to professional coaching and lessons from our advanced members. . All three weapons are used and taught at the club: Foil, Epee, and Sabre. UEA Fencing is consistently one of UEA's top-performing BUCS teams and is ideal for the aspiring and the accomplished fencer alike. As well as fencing, we have an active social side to the club with our Socials Secs organising a variety of socials throughout the year including sports nights, pub crawls, and Christmas and Easter meals.
FOIL TASTER SESSIONS
We will be running free taster sessions on Wednesday the 15th of February from 5:40-7pm (back half of Hall 1). If you'd like to give fencing a go please come along. All kit will be provided but please come in long trousers and trainers and bring a bottle of water. Any questions feel free to email!
FOIL BEGINNERS - FROM 15/02
If you’ve never fenced before (Or haven’t in a long time/want a refresh), this section is for you!
Starting from Wednesday the 15th, we will be running our beginners’ course! The foil beginners course runs for 6 weeks and will get you to grips with using foils, with each session running for an hour. The course aims to take you from never having fenced before, to being able to fence freely with the rest of the club. So, if you enjoyed the taster session, this is perfect for you!
Sessions will take place in the back half Hall 1 of the Sportspark on Wednesdays from 5:40pm- 7:00pm.
To take part, you must purchase the beginner's course membership from our SU page, at £20. If you are attending the beginners’ course, you do NOT at any point need to purchase the standard fencing membership. If you wish to continue fencing with us after the beginners’ course has ended, simply purchase the £15 top-up! Please aim to arrive 15 minutes before your start time at the lockers upstairs to grab kit.
INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED MEMBERS – FROM MONDAY 16TH JANUARY
There are two sessions a week which you are welcome to attend!
Mondays 7:40-10:20pm in Hall 2, and Wednesdays 5:40-7:40pm in the back half of Hall 1.
Depending on numbers of each weapon, club nights will consist of free fencing, ladders/poules, and the opportunity for one-on-one coaching. On Mondays, we will not have formal coaching available while the beginners’ course is running, as they get priority.
If you have your own kit, please bring it along as it greatly helps us. If you need to borrow some kit, please let us know in advance if possible. We have kit available to borrow, however, we need to ensure we are working within COVID guidelines!
Club membership is £35 for the year, and UEASport Membership will also need to be purchased (as with every UEA sports club).
Like all other clubs and sports at UEA, you will first need a UEASport Membership, which you can purchase above
Norfolk Fencing Club also runs on a Wednesday directly after our session. Norfolk club charge £10 per semester for UEA fencing members, this does include holidays (i.e. semester 1 will cover Christmas holidays), payment will be taken by Norfolk Fencing directly at your first session of the semester.
