Brisbane to host international cadet fencing tournament

Asian Epee Circuit 2

The Queensland Fencing Association is proud to be hosting the 2017 Asian Cadet Epee tournament from 22-23 July 2017. The tournament is part of the new Asian Cadet Circuit, established this year by the Asian Fencing Confederation to give cadet (Under 17) fencers more international competition experience.

This is a great opportunity for young Queensland epee fencers. Details on how to register for the event will be available soon. In the meantime, interested fencers should ensure they have a Fencing Confederation of Asia licence ($25), available through the Australian Fencing Federation. Details here.

Information about the competition will be updated on the dedicated Facebook page as it becomes available. Like the page and keep checking for new posts.

Sabre fencers also benefit from a local event, with Sydney hosting a cadet sabre competition as part of the new circuit on 2nd September 2017. Details here.

The Asian Cadet Circuit competitions have been assessed by the Australian Fencing Federation as category E events. Australian competitors will be eligible for national ranking points, calculated at 0.8 times the points awarded for the Oceania Championships held outside Australia. Information about how ranking points are calculated generally is outlined in the Australian Fencing Association selection policy.

The new circuit competitions will also impact on fencers’ Asian zone rankings. For the 2016-17 season, Asian zone cadet rankings will be determined by results from the Asian Cadet Championships (in 2017 held in Korat, Thailand in April) plus the best three results from the new circuit events.

The complete Asian Cadet Circuit calendar can be viewed here.
