Fencing clubs throughout New Zealand are reminded to operate within the Ministry of Health and Sport NZ guidelines for each Covid19 Level.

Auckland clubs will remain closed while in Level 4 and Level 3.

The rest of NZ is in a revised Level 2 – we are waiting for guidelines from Sport NZ on how clubs and sport will operate under these revised restrictions. More information should be available shortly on the following page:

Given the travel restrictions in place due to the COVID19 pandemic, the Oceania Fencing Confederation have made the decision to cancel the 2021 Oceania Championships. Fencing NZ will make a decision regarding the New Zealand Championships, which are scheduled to take place at Labour weekend (23rd to 25th October), on the 28th September.

National competitions will only be held if the host region is in Level 1.

Given the ongoing COVID19 situation, the Board has decided to postpone the New Zealand Junior Fencing Championship to later in the year - date to be confirmed.

Fencing North will process refunds for those fencers already registered.

As you will be aware, due to closed borders, the Oceania Junior (U20) tournament scheduled in Auckland in September will instead be the NEW ZEALAND Junior (U20) Championship.

Due to the reduction in expected entries, the tournament, originally scheduled for 3 days (10th to 12th September) will now be condensed to 2 days only (Saturday and Sunday - 11th and 12th September).

The Oceanic Fencing Confederation has advised that, due to many countries being unable to send teams to compete, the Oceanic Junior (U-20) Championships planned for September 10th – 12th in Auckland this year has been cancelled.

The tournament will instead be the New Zealand Junior (U-20) Fencing Championships on the same dates, and the Oceanic Teams Competition will be replaced by a NZ National Regional Teams competition..
