Fencing NZ announces a change in location for the Oceania and New Zealand Senior Championships and the NZ Junior Championships - PLEASE NOTE
After careful consideration and in consultation with Fencing North and Fencing Mid South, Fencing NZ announces the following location changes to the 2022 National Competition Calendar:
- Oceania and New Zealand Senior Championships and New Zealand Veteran Championships: Location changed from Christchurch to AUCKLAND - 22nd to 24th October, Te Pai Centre, Henderson, Auckland
- NZ Juniors (U20) - The NZ Junior Championships will be relocated to CHRISTCHURCH and held in conjunction with the U15/Cadet (U17) Championships on 24th and 25th September
Fencing NZ apologises for any inconvenience caused by these changes in the 2022 Schedule. This change has been driven by the cost of running the event in Christchurch which had a projected deficit of between $6-8000. This is not something Fencing NZ can afford to cover. The deficit is a combination of higher venue costs and a lack of experienced officials (especially referees) in the region.
