University of Newcastle Fencing club

The University of Newcastle Fencing is focused on the Olympic sport of fencing

We are a friendly and active club. We welcome all new members whether social or competitive. 

The Club sends members to state and local competitions throughout the year. We also have semi-regular club social events.
