Competition

The AHFC wishes to encourage its members to compete at any level: club, state, or nationally.

Club Tournaments are held on the last training session of each term. Categories of tournament will be decided on the night, depending on who is present.
Winners of our Junior groups will win the Victory Pauldrons, a decorative addition to the fencing uniform which denotes the current club champion (quarterly).

State Tournaments are listed on our Calendar page. The times listed are event start times, competitors MUST be present 15 minutes prior for roll call. We recommend arriving at least 30 minutes beforehand to ensure adequate warm-up time.
These competitions are held in the gymnasium of Scotch College, Mitcham (entry off Blythewood road).


State Competition enrolment is done online via the FencingSA site - SA Competitions menu - Enrolments page. Enrolment cut-off is 10pm Wednesday in the week preceding the competition. All competitions must have a minimum 4 entries or will be cancelled.
