The GW Fencing Club is open to both competitive and non-competitive members and has full foil, sabre, and epee squads. We welcome students with no previous fencing experience and the team runs a gear loan and coaching program to get new fencers started. We are also happy to have any visiting international fencers. Fencers will have the opportunity to compete in at least eight team meets per year. The team supports participation in individual tournaments but students will be responsible for their own travel and safety. Along with our competitions, we like to build team spirit with social events like pasta dinners and movie nights.  Practices are held in the Lerner Health and Wellness Center and include bouting, footwork, and conditioning. The team usually holds two to three practices per week, depending on GW scheduling.

Competitions include: Chaos Beginners Tournament, Southern Intercollegiate Fencing Association (SIFA) Meets, Baltimore-Washington Collegiate Fencing Conference (BWCFC) Meets, and United States Association of Collegiate Fencing Clubs (USACFC) Nationals. Individuals from the team also compete in: Temple Open, North Atlantic, Cherry Blossom, and BWCFC Individuals.
