Females fencing in Men’s Events:
The FeNZ board has made the following decision regarding the introduction of a trial period for women to fence in men’s national events. The Board would like to offer our top female fencers more competition to help prepare for the upcoming Commonwealth Cadet, Junior, Open and Veteran Championships. While the Board acknowledges that there are differing opinions on the effectiveness of this approach, it has agreed
to a trial period for a scheme as outlined below. This decision will be reviewed in December 2018. The initiative applies to events not currently run as mixed events.
Criteria for female fencers participating in FeNZ Men’s tournaments (all weapons):
1. Fencers will be selected by FeNZ selectors and invited to be part of the scheme;
2. Participation if selected, is not compulsory;
3. Fencers not selected may apply to selectors to be considered for invitation to identified Men’s events;
4. Prior to competing in a Men’s event, an under 18 female fencer must present written permission from their coach and a parent or guardian to the DT;
5. U15, Cadet and Junior female fencers may be selected to fence in Men’s junior events but not open Men’s events, even though they may fence in open female events;
6. A fencer’s continuation in the scheme will be assessed by FeNZ selectors after each event.
7. Females taking part in a Men’s event will not receive ranking points from this event;
8. Any female fencing in the men’s event must also fence in the corresponding woman’s event.
