Competitions

There are four levels of competitions for members that want to compete: Club, State, National and International.

Club

We occasionally run competitions at the club on a Saturday. There is an entry fee of $5 for club members, $10 for non-club members, that is payable on the day. Club equipment is suitable for use in these competitions. These competitions are organised on an on-demand basis, so keep an eye on our Facebook page for announcements.

State

Fencing SA run competitions throughout the year. Entry fees, license and equipment requirements vary depending on the level of competition. Full details, including the timetable, can be found on the Fencing SA website.

National

National competitions are organised and run by the Australian Fencing Federation, but hosted by one of the state associations. They offer junior, senior, veteran, and team competitions in all weapons. There is an entry fee payable before the event and strict equipment requirements, which must pass a control inspection before the competition. The timetable, entry fees, and equipment requirements can be found on the Australian Fencing Federation website. Our members regularly compete at this level and can offer advice about doing so.

International

International competitions are organised and run by either a host country or the Federation Internationale d'Escrime. Competing at this level is more involved than the other three levels. We suggest you consult with members who have competed at this level or with the Australian Fencing Federation for the entry requirements and process.

We have members that have competed at every level and can offer you advice and support, whatever level you would like to compete at (if any).
