Handicap R5 | 23
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.
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)
Dates and Times:
Please refer to the dates and times listed on the Handicap Calendar and each TICKET for the specific competition. The dates on this event span the whole round (all three weapons).
We aim for a roll-call time of 1pm, so please arrive at the venue with sufficient time to warm-up and get ready.
Late entries will not be accepted without prior notice being afforded to the tournament director.
Rankings and Results:
We track results and update rankings (and handicaps) after each round. The most recent results and rankings can be found on the Cavaliers Website.
