Master of Arms Tournament

Pauls weapons

Queensland is celebrating World Fencing Day on Saturday, 8th September with a Master of Arms tournament at Yeronga.
Fencing starts at 10:00am.
Fencers will compete in all three weapons (epee, foil and sabre) in randomly drawn pools. Weapons used in direct elimination bouts are decided by a coin toss.
This is a mixed gender, multi-age tournament with fencers handicapped according to their ability. The emphasis is on fun.
QFA can help with loan gear for those who don’t own all weapons, masks and lames. Make sure you to register and let us know what gear you’ll need to join in.
You might be able to pick up some cheap kit at our swap meet which is running on the day.
Then a party! There’ll be a sausage sizzle and a giant cake to share, plus a balloon-popping championship and other games for non-fencers.
We’ll also be hosting a Sports Nutrition Workshop for all interested fencers and their families from 12:00-1pm.
Cost to enter the Master of Arms tournament is $20 which includes free sausage sizzle and cake.
Pay in cash on the day but email us now to register your interest.
