News and updates for the Fencing Club

MU Fencing Club returns February!

We're almost there. We are currently going through our final preparations to ensure we have a COVID Safe return. Please stay tuned for more updates soon...

Indoor sports are still a no go for MU sports

Unfortunately we won't be returning for semester 2 (2020)...

Dear fencers,

Due to lockdown conditions it looks like we won't be resuming MU Fencing club activities in semester two. Presently, we do not have a given date from MU Sport when we might be able to return. We hope all our club members stay safe and connected in the meanwhile. We look forward to seeing everyone back at fencing in the future!

Club start 2020 :D

Lock in the dates: Start Friday 31st January! Beginner's course 6th March!

Hello fencers and happy new year!! We hope you are all ready for a brand new year of fencing and fun. We resume regular club sessions from Friday, January the 31st!
