Whether you're new to the sport or an experienced fencer, Demon Fencing welcomes all students to join our team and train with our local coach, Chris Beadling.The club was set up in 2011 by a former student who wished to challenge Leicester University, and has since grown dramatically.
In Fencing, there are 3 weapons you can choose from; foil, epee and sabre, and each require a different style of fighting. Fencing is a bit like physical chess; it combines your physical ability with tactical skills as you're always trying to think one step ahead of your opponent. The team competes in national competitions, including the popular and highly anticipated varsity against the University of Leicester every year.

Demon Fecning is a fun and social club, full of team spirit. We meet up every Wednesday evening for a night full of games and laughter, and can regularly be found in the pub after training! The club is made up of a mix of students studying various degrees. It's a great society to join if you want to make new friends, have a laugh and keep fit.
Fencing will not only improve your general fitness, but will also develop your endurance, coordination, agility and tactful thinking.
Training sessions: Monday 7.30-9pm & Sunday 12-2:30pm in the QE2 Sports Centre.
We provide the kit, all you need to bring is yourself, dressed in sportswear (no shorts) and trainers
