Welcome Back

Written by OUFC Webmaster. Posted in News

Hello everyone,


Welcome back to Oxford, everyone! I hope you’ve all had wonderful and relaxing summers!


Just a few things to say at the start of year- there are a few exciting Fresher’s events coming up in the next couple of week to take note of and some fantastic results from recent Opens.


Training Times

Attached is the leaflet given out at Fresher’s fair for 2014/15- please note the training times for the coming year.

All non- coached sessions begin this week but coached sessions begin in 1st week (the week starting Monday 13th October).



With the beginning of the new academic year, all members are required to renew their club membership.  Please print off the attached leaflet which contains the membership form, fill it out and return it with payment to the Treasurer, Grace Segall.  The deadline for membership renewals is Saturday of 3rd Week.  Membership is not complete unless you submit both the form and payment, which can be done by cash, cheque or bank-transfer.


Taster Session- Sunday 12th October 3.30pm

Next Sunday, there will be a taster session which everyone can attend. If you haven’t fenced before but would like to learn then come down to Cricket Schools at Iffley to see what it’s all about. If you’re an experienced fencer, then come to the taster to explain why it’s such a great sport!

Results From the Weekend

DSCF0350This weekend was full of fantastic results for OUFC fencers. Firstly congratulations to members of the women’s seconds sabre team, who entered the Leon Paul Sabre 1 League. Amy Nizolek came 5th after being seeded 2nd but being knocked out by teammate Hannah Schneiders. Natalie Page came 3rd, also knocked out by Hannah, who went on to come second.

The next day, them and the rest of the women’s seconds went to Cambridge to fence their seconds team. Sabre won 45 – 29, epee won 45 – 37 and foil lost 39 – 45, resulting in a 129 – 121 total win for Oxford. Fantastic results for the whole team and bring on Varsity 2014!

Finally, further congratulations to Idalina Baptista and Martina Zagaria who came 2nd and 3rd in the Women’s Foil National Novices event, both of whom were trained and at OUFC. A well earned result for both of them, and congratulations to their beginner coaches as well.
