Charles Stanmore Trophy

Presented to the state whose fencers are most successful in national Under 23 competitions held in conjunction with Australian Fencing Circuit events.

Charles Stanmore Trophy History and Winners

The Charles Stanmore 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.

E. J. v Szakall Trophy

Awarded at the Australian Junior Fencing Championships to the Australian state or visiting international team with the most points.

E. J. v Szakall Cup History and Winners

The E. J. v Szekall Cup is named in Honor of Endre Joseph (Andy) Szakall and was presented by the Victorian Amateur Fencing Association and the Council of Hungarian Associations of Victoria to the Australian Fencing Federation. 

E.J. Szakall OAM, M-H

Endre Joseph (Andy) Szakall was known as "Mr Fencing" in Australia for many years.
Andy was one of three post-war Hungarian refugees employed by the Victorian Railways who provided the impetus for forming the VRI Fencing Club in Melbourne in 1949. Andy had fenced in Hungary in the pre-war period, but he relinquished the opportunity to represent his new country at the 1956 Melbourne Olympics, choosing to become the Fencing Team Manager for Australia instead. Andy was coach and manager of Australian Olympic fencing teams from 1956 to 1972. He was chief organsier of the fencing events at the 1966 World Pentathlon Championships and head of the organsiing committee for the Fencing World Championships held in Melbourne in 1979.

Andy became VRI Fencing Club's Honorary Secretary and Instructor and remained active with the club until his death in 1988. During his coaching career, he produced multiple Australian Junior and Senior, Oceania and Commonwealth Champions. He was one of the main drivers behind the introduction of the Australian Junior Championships in 1965. Many of his pupils represented Australia at World, World Junior and Commonwealth Championships, whilst some became Olympians: Christine McDougall, Ernie Simon, and Helen Smith.

Andy was a brilliant administrator and a visionary who dared to undertake a range of projects that drove the development of Fencing in Australia. He was responsible for the successful staging of the World Fencing Championships in Melbourne in August 1979.
He served as President of the Victorian Amateur Fencing Association for twenty years, President of the AFF for 4 years and as Secretary General for 17 years.
He was Australia’s delegate to the FIE for many years, was a member of an FIE Commission and Secretary-General of the Oceanic Fencing Confederation since 1969.

He was awarded Life Membership of the VRI Fencing Club, the Victorian Amateur Fencing Association (now Fencing Victoria) and the Australian Fencing Federation for his dynamic and dedicated services to his beloved sport.

In 1980 he was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) for services to the sport of Fencing and was recognised as a Membre d’Honneur (Member of Honour) of the International Fencing Federation (FIE) in 1984.
