Fencing

The 2016-2017 season was one of the most successful in club history. While regular strong performers in the club continued to succeed, the next generation in the club began to step up to the challenge.

For the second season in a row, fencers who began their fencing experience with the club only a few years ago medaled at domestic circuit tournaments, while our newest members from this season came just shy of doing so as well.

The club celebrated their 50th anniversary this past season at the club’s annual national circuit tournament, the UNB Shield. The team met and celebrated with former club members and alumni.

League information

The UNB Fencing Club competes on the National Domestic Circuit and the Atlantic University Fencing Circuit composed of clubs from Dalhousie University, UPEI, Acadia University, Université de Moncton, Mount Allison, and Memorial University.

Team members also participate in international tournaments.

Practice schedule

The season runs from September to August.

  • Practice times:
    • Mondays and Wednesdays, 8 p.m. – 10 p.m.
