Welcome to the Oxford University Fencing Club website!


President's Welcome

Founded in 1891, Oxford University Fencing Club is one of Britain's oldest and most successful fencing clubs. The club caters for all levels, from beginners to international.

Foil, epee and sabre training are all on offer at the club. Advanced and intermediate fencers receive expert tuition from our club coach, Tomek Walicki, who leads a weekly training session and offers individual lessons throughout the week. In addition there are two club nights every week with free fencing. The quality of fencing is high across all three weapons and many members represent their country internationally.

Oxford University Fencing Club Olympic Drinks

Written by OUFC Webmaster. Posted in News

On the track, 4th August became known as ‘Super Saturday’ for the stunning achievements of British athletes in winning three gold medals in the space of 45 minutes. Off the track, the achievements of OUFC fencers to find their way through the hordes of spectators streaming out from Horse Guards Parade and the Mall to the comfort of the Oxford and Cambridge Club was no less impressive. Around thirty members, both Old and New, enjoyed drinks in the bar before retreating downstairs to the Marlborough Room to watch Jess, Mo et al in action on a big screen. We were delighted that Sophie Troiano (ChCh 2005-08), former Captain and President of the club, who had represented Britain in the Women’s Individual and Team Foil events, was able to escape the Athletes Village to be with us. Tomek Walicki was also able to join. It was particularly pleasing to see many old members who do not normally make it to Oxford for the Old Blues match attend the event and catch up with old friends. Many expressed an interest in another event of this kind – Christmas Drinks will be discussed at the start of next term by the committee.
