Club history

The fencing club was founded in 1952 by Jupp Münch . The first sponsor of the association was the detergent company " REI " and that is why the new association was named "TUS REI". In the beginning, the club also offered other sports, but it soon turned out that fencing is the most successful sport. After the REI company was taken over in 1970, the club was named "Sportclub Koblenz Gutenfels eV". In the following year, the Königsbacher brewery took over the sponsorship and the association was given its current name. In 1985, a fencing hall with seven competition and six training lanes for the club's athletes was inaugurated on the Oberwerth . With the construction of the sports hallIn 1992 the club had another training facility in the Oberwerth sports park . In 1992 the club hosted the 7-national saber-fencing tournament and in 1995 and 1996 the 7-national foil fencing tournament. In 1999 the Königsbacher SC Koblenz received the “Green Belt for Exemplary Talent Promotion” award.
