CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (UTC/The Loop) – The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga hosts and teaches traditional style fencing matches at the ARC.
This small club meets every Tuesday and Thursday at 7pm inside the Aerobics Room on the first floor.
Any UTC student is welcome to join and equipment is provided for use. Students should bring tennis shoes and pants with them if they wish to fence.
President of the Fencing Club, Matthew Curvin, encouraged any student interested in joining to come and try it out. “Anybody is welcome to join fencing club even though it is outside of UTC,” Curvin said.
Abby Norcross said that the fencing club helps her to relieve daily stresses of college life. “I still go to fencing because it’s a very good stress relief after school and it’s a good way to make friends,” Norcross said.
The charge to join the club is 20 dollars but first time students are invited to try fencing free of charge.
