BU Fencing club to host annual tournament

The Bangor University’s Fencing Club has announced that they will be hosting this year’s University-run fencing tournament for the first time in its history.

The tournament, which is the biggest university-run fencing tournament in Wales, will include competitors from universities across the country.

The tournament is going to be held on the Normal Site premises in gym number three from Saturday 15th March, and it is expected that at least five other universities in Wales will be sending teams and representatives. These include teams from Cardiff and Aberystwyth.

In the history of the competition, Bangor University have not won it, says the Club Captain. However, he does believe that this is our year, considering we are the ones hosting it and have the home advantage. With enough support, the fencing team can win this, so they are encouraging all the support they can gather in time for the tournament in March.

For those students that are interested in participating in the event or joining the BU Fencing club, their sessions are held in Gym 3 on Normal Site, from 8-10 pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and from 1-4pm on Saturdays. Anyone interested is welcome to come by to any of the listed sessions and join in with the team.
