To join the ANU Fencing Club, you must be either a student of the ANU, or be a member of ANU Sport, which you can sign up for below.
Please note that this form is intended for experienced fencers. If you have no prior fencing experience, you will need to complete a beginner course. The Club runs its beginner courses twice a year.
Applicants must be at least 16 years old to join the club, and must abide by the Code of Conduct. All memberships start on 1 January 2019 and expire 1 January 2020.
Membership Eligibility and Categories
In line with ANU Sport requirements, there are three main categories of membership:
all persons enrolled at the ANU University as a student. [You will need to provide your student number, which will be checked with ANU before your membership is considered valid]
alumni of the ANU University;
a graduate of a registered higher education provider listed on the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency’s National Register or any successor body recognised by the University;
a current student of such a provider;
staff of the ANU;
staff of other organisations whose place of employment is at the University campus within the Australian Capital Territory; and
club coaches [Membership sign-ups under this category are pending until approved by the ANUFC Committee]
for prospective members who do not meet the eligibility criteria of the above categories. A list of these members will be taken to the Board who will decide if they are a suitable Member (or Members) of ANU Sport [applicants under this category should e-mail the club before applying]
ANU Students are automatically members of ANU Sport. Non-ANU Students and Associates must pay for ANU Sport Membership (which entitles them to join multiple clubs and has various other benefits) to be eligible for ANU Fencing Club Membership.
Update for non-students:
From January 2019, ANU Sport no longer takes payments for ANU Sport Membership Fees separately to club membership fees. As per this page, club membership fees for non-students will now include the ANU Sport Club Affiliation Fee of $120 and will thus be increasing by that amount in 2019. Upon payment of this fee, and approval with ANU Sport, you will also become a member of ANU Sport for 2019.
Members who hold existing non-expired ANU Sport memberships may apply for a refund of the remaining time on their membership at the rate of $10 per month. Use this form and submit to ANU Sport (at the Reception Desk or by email).
ANU Sport Memberships will now align with ANU Fencing Club Memberships (calendar year). SRA Numbers are no longer required to sign up for club membership.
ANU Student: $140
Non-ANU Student: $270
Club Coach: $250
