UTS Fencing Club:

UTS Fencing Club is one of the most successful and competitive fencing club in Oceania. It is the home to current and past Australian National Representatives, Commonwealth, National and State Champions and many more NSW representatives. All three Olympic fencing weapons (foil, epee and sabre) are practised at the club.

As a progressive club, we are always on the move to produce the next generation of champions. We encourage all UTS students who have a passion for our sport to fence and train with the club regardless of their levels.

For those students with no previous fencing experience, the club offers beginners’ and intermediate fencing classes at the start of each semester. Some of the finest Australian fencers were students from the universities' Learn to fence program, and because fencing is fun, you don’t have to be a competition-fencer to enjoy the sport.

There are social events throughout the year where you will also have the opportunity to meet and socialise with students from other Australian universities. These events include the Australian Universities Games and the Australian Eastern Universities Games.
