Club

We run occasional, informal club competitions, but finish each year with our traditional events.

Kids’ competitions: Festive Foil, Elves’ Epee, Santa’s Sabre (open to our Saturday and Monday junior class fencers)

Adult competitions: Unexpected Epee (one-touch epee, open to all club members) 


Inter-club

Clubs sometimes organise friendly competitions externally to the official Fencing SA state calendar. We have an ongoing tournament with the Adelaide Hills Fencing Club: the Golden Gauntlet. It involves a junior foil team and senior epee team event. More information is provided in the e-newsletters.
