ADFA V ANU intervarsity

The aim of this competition is to

“Develop competition and camaraderie between members of the Australian Defence Force Academy and the ANU Fencing Club.”


The inaugural Intervarsity competition will be held on Sunday 31 July 2016.

This should really go without saying, but club members who are competing must be students of their respective universities.


The Intervarsity will consist of Novice Foil and Open Foil competitions, and a Team Foil event. Following the individual competitions, the top ranked fencer from each university will participate in exhibition matches. For the Team event, one team from each university will compete.

The winner of the Intervarsity shield will be determined through a 'best of three' result in the exhibition matches, rather than the rankings from either of the individual competitions.

ANUFC student members are encouraged to represent the university and participate in the event. We also encourage non-student club members to get involved with the running of the Intervarsity by volunteering with set-up and pack-up, refereeing, and with the BBQ.
