About Competitions

The NSW Fencing Association runs an extensive series of competitions throughout the year. In addition, the Australian Fencing Federation (AFF) has a series of open and age-based tournaments. NSWFA members are eligible to enter any individual tournament run by NSWFA and NSWFA affiliated members are eligible to enter tournaments run by the AFF. For tournaments run by other State Associations, please contact the relevant Association directly.

At the international level, the Federation Internationale d’Escrime (FIE) runs Grand Prix, World Cup and World Championships events. Strict eligibility rules apply for entering FIE events: for more information, see the Elite Fencers section of this website.

The interactive calendar shows all NSWFA, AFF competitions and AIS camps and some international events that may be of interest to NSW fencers (e.g. World/Zone Championships, and events taking place in Australia).

All NSWFA competition entries and fencer registrations are done via our online Register/Pay portal.

Entries for National tournaments, and nominations for international events, are done via the AusfFencing website.
