About us

At Lund University Fencing Club (Lunds AFK) we create the fencing club which brings value to people, community and our future. We do this by giving everyone the opportunity to develop within the fencing sport as far as possible according to personal ambition, ability and will.

Lunds AFK was founded in 2022 in Lund, but we continue to build on a much longer and older tradition of fencing in the city. Read more about this in “Fencing Master at Lund University“.

Lund University Fencing Club is also part of a much larger context, the Swedish sports movement, which today consists of 70 different Special Sports Federations which in turn are members of the National Sports Confederation. Lund’s Academic Fencing Club belongs to the Swedish Fencing Association and provides both frameworks and prerequisites for the business

Our Core Values

In Lund University Fencing Club, we create the environment where everyone is welcome and where all members feel that they are equally important.

Fairness and respect

We believe that by showing respect we will be shown respect in return. We show respect towards each other in- and outside the club, towards the work needed to reach results and towards the achieved results. We don’t tolerate discrimination of any kind.


W​e are strongest when we trust each other, pull in the same direction and take decisions together. We create an environment where everyone is included into the process. We aim to have a strong feeling of being connected as club members and always put our efforts into it.

Lead by example

We stand for respect, modesty, generosity and friendship. We do our best to ‘walk the talk’, be the best version of ourselves and bring out the best in each other. We do it by having our values and demonstrating the right behavior in every action we do. We engage and inspire others to act accordingly.


We stand for equal opportunities for each and everyone to learn and develop during training, events, club-work. We help everyone to make the most of their talents with respect to their conditions and objectives/goals.


We as club-mates are willing to and do give more than is expected, “to go the extra mile”. It is all about putting our “heart and mind” into it. We expect our members, fencers and coaches to invite each other for cooperation, co-creation and fun together!
