The ESTEC Fencing Club (EFC) is the only fencing club in the European Space Agency located at ESA ESTEC in Noordwijk, The Netherlands.

The club is open to ESA staff members, contractors, trainees and their family. A limited number of fencers from outside ESA can also join the club.

Our mission is to focus on the joy of fencing for both beginners and experienced fencers. The emphasis is mainly on recreational fencing.
