International fencers

Competing in Australia

Entry to Australian National Tournaments is open to all fencers of the world.  International fencers must be a current member of their national federation which must be in good standing with the FIE. The AFF will need to confirm this as part of registration.

Fencers should note the equipment requirements for Australian national events which may be different than those of other countries.

Where it is not immediately possible to confirm good standing with a home federation, the Tournament Management Commission must make inquiries. This may take some days to complete and a time delay should be allowed for when registering.

The entry fee is for any/all weapons in the age group. ie. one entry fee will allow the fencer to enter the foil, epee and sabre in the age group (but an officiating levy may still apply).

If there is more than one age group set of events at the tournament, and the fencer wishes to fence in different age groups, then an entry payment per age group is required.

International Fencers (Non Oceania Confederation member countries)

Teams competing at Australian events are representatives of their respective countries, not of individual clubs within that country.

If a competitor requires a formal letter of invitation (as a result of their country's residency, passport or visa conditions), this should be requested at least six weeks prior to the relevant event, by email to  [email protected].
