And so we’ve reached that point again. The Fresher’s have arrived, all clubs are gearing up to attract as many people as possible at Fresher’s Fair and the Fencing Club is not different. Last year was a success: we had more novices than ever before trying it out and also staying, our teams had several successes including BUCS Championships gold for the Women’s 1st, bronze for the Men’s 1st and the Women’s 2nd, Men’s 2nd and Men’s 3rd finished 3rd, 2nd and 6th respectively in their leagues, and we took several medals in the BUCS Individual Championships. But most importantly of all: we had a great time!
Another year is coming up, and a few things are changing such as coaches and training hours, but a lot stays the same. We’re looking forward to seeing many, many fresh faces, both those that have fenced before and those that are completely new to the sport. Please come find us at Fresher’s Fair, sneak in to one of our trainings if you’re curious or email (fencing [at] imperial dot ac dot uk) if you want!
I’m definitely looking forward to this year, and I have a feeling that it’s going to be great!
