I’m sure that I won’t be the first to say this, but welcome to college! You’ll have many exciting opportunities at UCI, and getting involved in clubs can be one of the most rewarding. We hope you check out fencing in your exploration of all UCI has to offer.
Join our Facebook group for the latest updates on the Fencing Club. If you have questions, you can post there or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. To learn more about us, visit our About page. You’ll find information about our club and how to join, as well as what makes fencing so awesome. Separate from our club is a beginners fencing class offered by the ARC on Wednesday nights at 7pm. Our club practices on Wednesday nights at 8:30pm and Friday nights at 7pm, and our first practice is after the ARC class on September 30th at 8:30pm in the ARC Activity Annex. Anyone is welcome, from undergrads to graduate students, from complete beginners to A-rated competitors. Just wear comfortable workout clothes and we’ll provide the rest. We offer coaching, competition opportunities, and social events where you can get to know your fellow swordspeople. And since the club is a student-run organization, you can get involved with the club leadership. If you’re looking to get in shape, fill out your resume, or find new friends, the Fencing Club at UCI is a great place to start!
The Fencing Club will be at the Anteater Involvement Fair on Monday, September 19th from 11am-3pm in Aldrich Park. Drop by to say hi, ask questions, and sign up for email updates. Later that night we’ll be at Late Night at the ARC with demos from 10-11pm.
For more information, feel free to poke around this website, and don’t hesitate to contact us either by e-mail or on our Facebook group. You are of course more than welcome to drop by practice. See you at the ARC!
Practice is canceled from July 8 to July 15 as the adult supervision (so to speak) will be out of town. Practice will resume on July 20, the Wednesday of the week after next. There should be no further hiatuses from July 20 through the end of the summer.
The Fencing Club is currently meeting for summer practice on Wednesdays and Fridays from 7-10 pm in the ARC Activity Annex. If you’re new to fencing, drop by and check us out! If you’re a current fencer in the area over the summer, come and fence–we’re still here!
Our practice is cancelled on Friday, May 5th, due to the Club Sports banquet. If you are a member of the club, please check your email and RSVP for the banquet. If you are not a member yet, please don’t show up on that day because nobody will be around.
A Special Election was held on Friday, April 8. Congratulations to Ryan Sivoraphonh, who was elected to the office of Secretary, and Jeremy Pantig, who was elected to the office of Armorer.

Hello and welcome back! I hope everyone enjoyed their breaks.
We have practice starting this week at our normal times: Wednesday 1/6 at 8:30pm and Friday 1/8 at 7pm. If you’ve never fenced before, worry not! New fencers are always welcome, so feel free to drop by the Activity Annex and check us out.
This quarter we have two tournaments. The first one is on Saturday, February 6th, at UCSD. The second one is on Saturday, February 20th, at CalTech. If you’re interested in competing, be sure to save those dates. We’ll also have more announcements about social events and whatnot later in the quarter, so join our Facebook group and come to practice for the most up to date information.
See you Wednesday!
Congratulations to Laelia Nguyen who was elected Secretary at our special election last Wednesday.
