Described by some as physical chess, fencing is an exhilarating sport that requires both mental and physical agility. We welcome and cater for all ability levels, from complete beginners to experienced and competitive fencers. We field teams at a number of competitions throughout the year, including the widely attended Warwick National Novices competition, specifically for fencers with less than two years experience, as well as the international and competitive X-SYSTRA Challenge in Paris. Varsity games also take place annually between Southampton and Portsmouth. The society also offers a number of social events throughout the year including the annual Pirate Social, quiz nights, a Christmas meal, and many more!

Training this year will be: 

  • Mondays: The Cube: 4:30pm - 6:00pm/Team Southampton Sports Hall: 6:30pm-7:30pm
  • Thursdays: The Activities Room: 4:00pm - 6:00pm
  • Fridays: Team Southampton Sports Hall: 5:30pm - 6:30pm/Plant Pot: 5:00pm - 7:30pm
  • Saturdays: Novices Training, Team Southampton Sports Hall: 4:30pm - 6:30pm
