The Club

Our vision is to provide the most attractive university fencing programme in Scotland and one of the best-supported programmes in the UK. 

We aim to inspire our students and actively encourage every fencer to work hard, develop, improve and enjoy their fencing experience at university whether it be playing, coaching, refereeing, volunteering or socially.

The University is committed to the pursuit of excellence and our goal is for all our fencers to compete at the highest-level possible and to achieve short, medium and long-term goals set by the club and themselves. 

Fencing is a challenging sport requiring lightning quick reflexes, subtle tactical problem solving and gritty determination and was one of the first sports to be included in the modern Olympic Games in Athens in 1896.

The club is very friendly and inclusive, committed to providing members of all abilities, from absolute beginners to experienced internationalists, with an opportunity to explore the sport of fencing to their own individual needs. 

Saints Fencing is a truly multicultural environment where students get to meet and make friends with others from all over the world.
