Want to have a go with a sword? If you've done it for years or want to try it out for the first time, Imperial Fencing Club is for you. We fence each of the three weapons: foil, épée, and sabre, with training sessions at Ethos on Mondays 6-8pm, Tuesdays 8-10 pm, Fridays 5-8pm and in the Union space on Sundays 12-3 pm.

We consistently gain medals at the BUCS individual championships. We have more BUCS teams than any other UK university, allowing fencers to compete at all levels. In recent years our 3 Men's teams and 2 Women's teams have been competing and performing well in the BUCS League. If you're interested in competing for Imperial, we will be holding team trials on Wednesday 5th October; come see us at Freshers' Fair for more details of this and everything else.

We also have a large number of novice and intermediate fencers, who have the opportunity to compete at tournaments with others of similar ability throughout the year. We run a beginner's course for those who are new to fencing. As part of Give It a Go we also have two free Taster sessions for those interested in starting fencing - just come along on Tuesday 4th Oct or Monday 10th Oct in a T-Shirt, tracksuit trousers, and trainers to try it out!

We are a very relaxed and friendly club and are one of the largest and most socially active at Imperial, organising social events throughout the year.
