MEET THE EXEC
Our exec are all current students at the University of Warwick and are elected annually by the members as per our constitution, which can be found here.
I’m a 2nd year History and Politics student, excited to be returning for my second year on the Warwick Fencing Exec as President having served as Men’s Team Captain during our title winning campaign last year. Entering what will be my 9th year of fencing next year, I have been fortunate to compete at every level of the sport from county to international, the highlight of which was earning my GB patches in October 2019. I have also, in the past, captained both my school and regional sides and am a qualified 3-weapon referee. I am so looking forward to leading the club this coming year, as we continue to grow this fantastic club into both a superb sporting environment and a fun and engaging social space.
Hiya, I’m Sophie, a second year English and Theatre student here at Warwick. I’ve been fencing sabre for over 12 years; competing on the national and international circuits, and now on the Women's First Team here.
I’m so excited to be on the Warwick Fencing Exec for a third year, reprising my role as Vice-President, and running our social media again as Publicity Officer. You'll be hearing from me a lot, whether that be through club weekly emails, replies to DMs, or our brand new TikTok account!
I absolutely love this club and its community, and can't wait for another year of fun with competitions and socials <3
Louis Tassin de Tonneville
I’m Louis, a first year Accounting & Finance student. I’ve been fencing for thirteen years, with epee as my primary weapon. My goal as treasurer for this year is to ensure the financial sustainability of the club, all whilst ensuring we provide a fun and environment for all levels of experience. I’ve also had the privilege of serving in the team, and I hope we can keep our upwards trajectory this year. Keep an eye out for my memes in the club’s weekly emails!
Women's 1st Team Captain
Hey everyone, I’m Teodora and I’m in my third year of Management.
I’m incredibly excited to be this year’s captain and hope that we can have a fun and successful year with the women’s team!
Men's 1st Team Captain
Hi! I’m Colin, a second year PPE student. I’ve been fencing for 12 years in both epee and foil. I have always loved the thrill of the game and hope to share the excitement to everyone. I look forward to getting members involved in BUCS matches and help them reach their full potential.
Welfare and Inclusion Officer
Hi everyone! I'm Sopida. In the 2023/24 academic year, I'll be in my 4th year of PhD doing Synthetic Biology. I started fencing in October 2022 and have been a consistent participant ever since. I discovered a new sport that I enjoy, and I made many friends from fencing. I want the club to be inclusive and nice to everyone, and I want to make sure that everyone has access to develop their fencing skills. If you have any issues concerning your studies, health, or club activities. Feel free to talk to me 🙂
Hi! I'm Evan, a 4th Year Maths Student. After being Treasurer for 2 years, I'm returning to the exec (again) as both Competitions Officer and Social Sec. I've been heavily involved in running our amazing competitions over the last 2 years, and I'm really excited to be leading the effort on this year's competitions. I look forward to getting our members the best opportunities to compete, through our Novice Competition for newer fencers, the Warwick Open for more experienced and developing fencers, and even through organising trips to opens nationally (and maybe even internationally!). More than that though, I want to give all the members the best possible experience of the club generally - including through the (more numerous than ever!) socials coming up next year.
Men's 2nd Team Captain
Hi I'm Laszlo. I am in my 3rd year doing an Integrated Masters in Mathematics and Physics. I started fencing just over 2 years ago and I have loved the sport ever since. I am a sabreur and I am very excited to be the Men's 2nd Team Captain in the coming year
Hi, I'm Judah and I'm one of your Armourers for this year! I am a fourth year MMath student and I have been fencing Sabre for 7 years now. It is my first time on an exec team and I'm very excited to be playing a key role in this fantastic club! I'm looking forward to not only keeping the club's kit in tip-top shape but also to improving it and passing on armoury skills to the wider club. See you on the piste!
Hi! I’m Patrick, a 4th year Chemistry student. I started fencing at the club in my 3rd year, specialising in Sabre and I’m really excited to now be a part of the exec.
