Welcome to the University of Liverpool Fencing club

Whether you have never fenced before or if you are already a competitive fencer, the University of Liverpool Fencing club has something for everyone.


There are many opportunities for our members to compete individually in Liverpool and across the country as part of the club trips, as well as to join the men's or women's teams competing in the British Universities and Colleges Sports leagues.

Social sport

If you don't want to compete and just want to have fun fencing then that is great too; we provide all the necessary kit, so you just turn up.


We are also one of six chosen performance squads within the University which means our first teams get extra support such as strength and conditioning to help achieve our ambitious goals. Our women's first team has currently competed in the premier league, whilst our men's first team finished in the top half of 1A last season. We also have two seconds teams for our new fencers so everyone can compete weekly.
