With over 300 participating athletes, fencing is one of the symbolic sports of the Summer Universiade, as well as the springboard for those taking part in the world championships and the Olympics. Fencing has been present since the first edition of Turin in 1959 and was also one of the first sports to be included in the university program.
In the Duisburg edition in 1989, for the first time within an international competition, two changes were introduced in the program: the women’s team and the electronic control in the saber tournament, increasing the level and quality of the competition. In the next Napoli 2019 edition there will be all internationally recognized competitions.
