charles Stanmore for webThe Charles Stanmore Trophy is presented to the State whose fencers are the most successful in national Under 23 competitions held in conjunction with Australian Fencing Circuit events.

The Trophy was donated by NSW coach and fencer Richard Emmerick in 2016.

It is named after an Australian Olympic fencer and coach.

At the 1952 Helsinki Olympic Games, Charles Stanmore represented Australia in individual epee and was a member of the Australian men’s team in all three weapons.

At the 1950 Empire Games (now Commonwealth Games) he was a member of the gold-medal winning Australian men’s epee team.

He coached the Australian team at the 1962 Commonwealth Games.

He died in 2012, aged 88.

Charles Stanmore studied fencing prior to the 1952 Olympics with Mangiaroti, Pinotti, Perone and Mossbaum. At home, he re-started the Sydney Fencing Club and coached many successful fencers, including Greg Bailey, Bob Barrie, Melodie Coleman, Ann Darragh, Richard Emmerick, Jeff Gray, Ivan Lund, Jacqui Mansfield, Roger Stanmore, Leon Thomas and Len Traynor.

Several of the fencers he trained became coaches – Greg Bailey, Bob Barry, Richard Emmerick, Jeff Gray and Leon Thomas – so the legacy of Charles Stanmore lives on.
