Welcome to the Alumni section of the Cambridge University Fencing Club.
The club boasts a high accolade of alumni, ranging from Olympians, internationally ranked fencers, Blues, Half-Blues, Seconds and beginners varsity champions. All however share one thing: a passion for light blue fencing.
The major event for Alumni in the CUFC calendar is of course the annual “Old Blues Match” held traditionally in the last week of the Michealmas term. At this prestigious event old team members are invited back to show the current team that both the fencing and the partying really were better in their day. The Old Blues Match and dinner are always eagerly anticipated event by alumni and current team members alike. This year’s match will take place on Saturday 29th November at the New University Sports Centre. The match will be followed, in full CUFC tradition, by dinner held in the Wordsworth Room of St John’s College. For full details please contact our Alumi Officer (contact details here.
Finally, CUFC has recently launched its new Alumni Facebook group, which we hope will allow Alumni to keep in touch with one another and stay up to date with the current fortunes of the team, and foster a vibrant light blue community.
