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. Our current professional coach, Paul Stimpson, has fenced for more than 25 years and has coached the sport for over 13. 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 events throughout the year from pub crawls to lazer tag. 

 

 

New & Prospective Fencers:

 

We have 2 sessions per week:

  • Monday - Hall 2 - 7:40pm - 10:20pm: Beginners courses take place on this session.
  • Wednesday - Hall 1 - 5:40pm - 7:40pm:  Intermediate fencing and team training sessions. 

Fully paid members can attend both of these sessions; there will be coaches for independent lessons and pistes out for free fencing in both. 

On Wednesdays, for intermediate and advanced members, the Norfolk Fencing Club offers a discounted entry to their club. Current UEA students can visit their sessions at £3.00 per person per session, instead of paying the visitors rate. So, if you want an extra 2 hours of fencing on a Wednesday, their sessions run from 7:40pm - 9:40pm just after our sessions end. 

A full membership is £35, with which you can attend all of our sessions, fence freely, take part in our ladders, and use our equipment if you need to. All beginners’ courses are only £15, and last 6 weeks. During those 6 weeks you'll be trained in your weapon of choice to an intermediate level on the Monday sessions, have access to club equipment, and be able to get to know the club. If you then want to go on and become a full member and continue fencing with us, you can then simply pay an extra £20 and become a full member without any extra fee or hassle! If you're looking to compete, you can purchase a BUCS membership for £5.

Please note, you can only take part in one beginners course (Foil/Epée/Sabre) as they are all held on the Monday sessions simultaneously, be sure to try out our 'Give it a Go' sessions to get a feel of which weapon you would like to learn. 

Like all other clubs and sports at UEA, you will first need a SAM (Sports Association Membership), which you can either purchase online through the UEA SU website, or at the Sports Fayre.
