GSSV Donar 1881 is a club run by and for the members, and our members choose a new board every year. The board takes care of the daily operations of the club, takes track of the members, tries to spend the subsidies that we receive on new club material, and maintains contact with sister fencing clubs and umbrella organizations.
Serving as a board member is a great opportunity for students to gain executive experience, and it's a lot of fun. If you're interested in becoming a board member, please contact us!
I am currently working as a programmer after obtaining my bachelor's degree in mathematics at the University of Groningen. I started fencing when I was 14 and have been fencing sabre ever since. I also try to apply myself in both epee and foil when I see the opportunity and I am always enthusiastic about teaching people what I know.
Hi! I’m Cecilia and I study honours bachelor of Human Geography and Urban and Regional planning in RUG and plan on graduating this year! I had no fencing experience before and as an active person, I naturally tried out many different sports once I settled in Groningen. As an Estonian, the multinational and supportive atmosphere of Donar drew me straight in!
I am finishing a Bachelor in Greek and Latin Language and Culture. After having finished my bachelor, I aim to do an Educative Master and eventually work as a teacher of classics. In 2019 I started fencing at Donar without prior experience, because I set a challenge for myself; compete in a modern Penthalon tournament.
Hey! My name is Meine and this year I am the treasurer of our board. I'm 24 years old and currently studying Business Management at the Hanze. I started fencing after I had tried the fencing course and I immediately fell in love with the sport and the club. I have been a member of our amazing club for four and a half years now and I’m glad to represent the club as part of our new board!
