Fencing

Vic Swords help enable people (from beginners to advanced) to learn the sport of fencing. Come and see what this international sport is all about.

Victoria has a long and proud history of fencing. The first fencing club, the Women's Epee Club, was started in 1910. Over the next 34 years a few fencing clubs were established, with the last one being Victoria Swords in 1944, the last year of WWII. We have provided both the University population and the community with the opportunity to partake in the exciting sport of fencing.

We are a university-based club that trains fencers of all ages and ability. We welcome both university students and members of the community to learn the art of fencing at social or competitive level.

Beginners can use club gear and participate socially as well as in competitions, if they are affiliated as competitors.
