Minimum Equipment Requirements:

Protective clothing: 350N Jacket, 350N Plastron, Glove, Trackpants or Breeches+Long Socks, Chest Protector (women).

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.)

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.

The white makes us all equal. Please respect that.

 Your positive support makes a better event for all.




Photography is allowed at all Fencing North competitions. The competition venue is considered a public space.

Non public spaces with full respect of privacy are the changing rooms and the toilets. No photography is allowed in there.

Please do not change in public spaces. If you do, you waive your right to privacy.

Pictures taken at the event can be published on social media, the internet and printed media by Fencing North, spectators and competitors.

See nzlaw.co.nz for more details.
