Epee Handicap Competitions

Event description

Welcome to our handicap competitions!

For many years, Cavaliers have run these competitions as a way to expose newer fencers to competitive format fencing in a fun, welcoming and learning environment.

These competitions are open to all fencers from all clubs, and are run for all three weapons.

We only require that a fencer have completed their Fencing WA Registration to ensure they're covered by insurance in the (very unlikely) event they are injured.


These comps are freely available to all fencers, including those visiting from interstate or overseas.

If you'd like to show your appreciation for the volunteers (without whom these comps wouldn't happen) - there is the option to make a small donation to the club.

We also ask that any fencer needing to borrow club equipment for the comp pay a nominal $5 equipment hire fee. This applies to both Cavs fencers and those from other clubs.

The Rules:

Our handicap competitions run according to the standard state competition structure and rules but with the added twist of a handicap system. For more details on the handicap system, please refer to the Cavaliers Website.

  • Start with round-robin poule bouts to 5 points or 3 minutes, seeded based on past competitions
  • All fencers promoted to direct elimination (DE) round, seeding based on poule results
  • Fencers defeated during DE round are out of the competition, with the exception of the semi-final round
  • Finals rounds are held for both 1st and 3rd place (time permitting)
