There is a large range of opportunities for all levels. There are lots of different competitions in Australia that New Zealanders attend: starting with the age groups U11/U13, U15/U17, U20 and a range of Open and Veteran competitions throughout the year.
In 2015 a group travelled to South Africa to compete in the U17 and U20 Commonwealth Championships. Every year New Zealand fencers travel around the world to compete in different competitions like the World Championships.
We have even had a few fencers compete in the Olympics with the most recent being Jess Beer in 2004.
In New Zealand there is a large range of competitions all throughout the country. Each region (North, Central, Mid South, and South) has their own regional age group and Open competitions with the regions also hosting national and international competitions each year.
