27/10/2021- University Fencing


BF welcomes all university fencers, clubs and officials to an online community discussion event on the 1st of November 2021, at 2pm.

In June 2020, British Fencing created a networking group for university fencing clubs. Comprised of a mixture of club officials, university fencing officers, and athletic or student union representatives, the purpose of the group was to strengthen the student offering in the higher education sector. The group is open to all universities in the UK.

The primary aim of the group was to create a community of practice that shared ideas to help grow and sustain the clubs. Our latest insight revealed there are over 3000 fencers that participate at over 70 universities in the UK. We also recognise that for some participants, their first experience of fencing will come whilst in higher education.

This latest online community discussion event is open to all clubs and their fencers, as we welcome new fencers to the higher education space.

This session is open to all fencers in higher education in the UK.

There will be main discussions and smaller groups to give access to relevant topics and areas of interest.

The session is scheduled from 2-4pm.
