    Hi
    i have applied to Brighton uni as my first choice, but i want to carry on my fencing career, in a university team preferably.
    but as far as i can find Brighton doesn't have it's own team? :confused:

    any help would be greatly appreciated

    You'd be welcome to train with the Sussex club but you wouldn't be able to compete for them

    Annoyingly, they only seem to train on one night - the busiest of the week for societies.

    Start a team! The university will fund you for equipment etc.

    I am pretty sure you could find 2-5 other people who fence and if not, then you can get people to come and learn!

    I'll come next year if you do decide to set one up

    Good luck and I hope to see you next year!
