Fencing Team

UMASS FENCING CLUB NEEDS YOUR HELP

 

Our team has been organized on campus since 1961, and ever since we have been training our students to get better at fencing! We compete throughout the school year with other club teams, as well as NCAA organized teams. In 2019, we placed 5th at the Club Fencing National Championships in Pennsylvania, in which over 40 teams compete. 

We strive to provide these opportunities to UMass Students while maintaining that the club stays affordable to all our members. To perform well and ensure everyone on the team has time to practice official electric fencing, we need more equipment such as floor reels and scoring boxes. One set of this equipment costs $2000, which enables two fencers to practice at a time. We need your help! Our budget has declined in previous years, and despite us fundraising over $1500 this fall on our own, it's just not enough to make ends meet as it costs us over $10,000 a year to run our team.

 

Help us get the equipment we need to practice hard, so we can do even better this year at Nationals!
