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 Monday the 26th of September from 7:40-9pm (Hall 2),  Wednesday the 28th of September 5:40-7pm (Hall 1) and Saturday the 1st of October 12:20-14:20pm (Hall 3) so 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 - MONDAY THE 3rd OCTOBER 

If you’ve never fenced before (Or haven’t in a long time/want a refresh), this section is for you!

Starting from Monday the 3rd of October, 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 Hall 2 of the Sportspark from 7:40pm- 9:00pm 

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! Again, aim to arrive 15 minutes before your start time outside to fill out the COVID survey.

 

FOIL BEGINNERS - WEDNESDAY THE 26th OCTOBER 

We will also be running a beginners course on Wednesdays from 5:40pm-7:00pm starting from the 26th of October

Sessions will take place in the back half of Hall 1 of the Sportspark

 

INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED MEMBERS – FROM MONDAY 26TH SEPTEMBER 

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.

For the first week intermediate/ advanced members please arrive 20 minutes after the usual start time! (Monday 26th 20:00, Wednesday 28th 18:00)

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 currently (and very kindly) let us fence at their club for no charge, as long as you have a UEA fencing membership and fill in their Health Declaration.
