If you start in B term then you will be behind, and it is impossible to catch up.
You can come to the practices without registering for PE credit if you want.
C and D term practices are for fencers with at least 2 terms of experience, with no PE credit available.
Note that the club can provide equipment for new fencers to use.

Fencing Club Alum:
Scott McKenzie reports in 2009: "I am a graduate of WPI, class of '76, and was in the Fencing Club 1975-76. In fact, I fenced in the New England Championships in sabre my senior year. I won about half my bouts. I am glad to see that the Fencing Club still exists when so much else has changed. I can still remember our roadtrips, we would carry extra gasoline in our car trunks due to the gas shortages. I remember that a female fencer from the '32 Olympics would occasionally come and practice with us..."

The Fencing Club Officers, who run the club and schedule matches, are elected each year by the club members.

Coach and Club Advisor is Dave Brown, (508) 831-5618. (dcb [at] cs.wpi.edu) {home page} {fencing vita}

The club encourages Fencing Club Alumni to keep in touch and return to fence the current club teams.

An alternative to fencing at WPI is to contact Worcester Fencing Club and take a class there.
Coach Syd Fadner welcomes WPI students at WFC's Open Fencing on Wednesday evenings.

For those living outside Worcester, consider one of the other great Fencing Clubs in the New England Area.
Directions to WPI are available.
