Working Electric Equipment (where applicable to your weapon): Weapon, Body Wire, Mask Wire, Lamé, 350N Mask (with electric bib for foil), Cuff/Gauntlet.

Please note that all masks must have two methods of securing them to your head (e.g. tongue and strap, double safety strap). Masks with frayed or worn elastic are unsafe and may be rejected.

Blades do not need to have an FIE stamp at regional competitions.

Epees: Leon Paul SR­1 blades with the V profile stamped 2013 to 2015 will not be accepted.

Leon Paul X-Change Masks: Require the secondary safety strap.

If a higher standard of equipment is available we recommend that you use it.

Full attire must be worn at all ranking competitions including breeches.

Track suits and track suit trousers are not suitable for a fencing competition. This is new for 2020 and the decision has been made for safety reasons.

If you don’t own the full attire please see your coach or club or send an email to us. We will try our best to help.

(If you seriously tried and failed to acquire a part of the whites you lack, we can and will make an exception. You must obtain that in writing (via email to the tournament organiser) by least the Thursday before the event. Entry is at the discretion of the DT and head referee.

Every fencer takes full responsibility to wear suitable whites and mask in good working order. There can be no claim laid against Fencing North for failing to do so.

Whites or club/school tracksuit are to be worn for presentations and/or podium.

Set up/ closing:

Every fencer is expected to help with set up and taking it down at the end. We fully understand that that is disruptive for competitors we do accept family members and friends helping instead.

The whole organisation of Fencing in NZ is made out of volunteers, mainly families of fencers or fencers themselves. No one gets paid.

The great thing about Fencing is that we have people from all sorts of backgrounds: CEOs fixing boxes, doctors taping down pistes and homemakers DT-ing.

 Your positive support makes a better event for all.

Trans gender policy:

Our objective is to have a well run & fun tournament for all.

We have adopted the IOC ruls on trans gender athletes. Please read here

At the moment our fencers prefer in some weapons gender seperated poules. We accomodate that where ever possible. However the DT has the right to combine and/or seperate gender into events.

If you wish to choose a gender or are a gender fluent fencer please contact the organisers to find the best solution.
