Victoria University of Wellington Swords Club

VUW has a long and proud history of fencing. The first fencing club, the Women's Epee Club, was started in 1910. Over the next 34 years a few fencing clubs were established with the last one being VUW Swords in 1944, the last year of WWII. We have provided both the University Population and the Community with the opportunity to partake in the exciting sport of Fencing.

We are a university based club that trains fencers of all levels of ability and welcome both university students and members of the community to learn the art of fencing at social or competitive level.

Our goal is to enable people to learn (from beginners to advanced) the sport of Fencing.

Beginners can use club gear and participate socially as well as in competitions, if they affiliate as competitors.
