Fencing Central 2022 Notices

The Fencing Central Committee is excited to welcome you all to the 2022 season! This is set to be a very exciting year for fencing in New Zealand, with the new COVID-19 Protection Framework helping us to run events safely, including a number of new and returning national tournaments and training camps, and the 2022 Commonwealth Fencing Championships in London.

As we look forward to the new season, there are a number of notices we would like to share with you.

Fencing Central Annual General Meeting

The 2022 AGM has been scheduled for Sunday 27th February 2022, in collaboration with the Trefoil Competition hosted by VUWSC. Details of timing, venue, and an agenda will be released prior to the scheduled date of the AGM.

If you would like to make a nomination for an Officer for the Management Committee, a notice of motion, or item of general business, you may submit these using the form below, or by emailing secretary@fencingcentral.org.nz.

National Affiliations

The Fencing Central Committee encourages all fencers, coaches, officials, and other members of the fencing community to register as a Fencing New Zealand Member affiliated with Fencing Central for the 2022 season. Membership for the 2021 season expires on 31st December 2021.

Becoming an affiliated member of Fencing New Zealand entitles you to participate in competitions, training camps, AGMs, and other events. This annual contribution is critical to the success of fencing in New Zealand. The affiliation fee helps fund the structure and network that connects clubs, regions, national, and international fencing organisations. Fencing New Zealand shares a percentage of the annual affiliation fees with Fencing Central to provide funding to support the region.

COVID-19 Safety

As with previous years, maintaining the health and well-being of our community remains a top priority for the committee going into 2022. We encourage all fencers to ensure that they are fully vaccinated in line with Government recommendations and scan-in at all fencing training and events to ensure effective contact tracing is possible.

If you are feeling unwell, showing any symptoms of COVID-19, have visited a location of interest, or have been a close contact of a positive case, we ask that you please do not attend any fencing events until you have returned a negative COVID-19 test, and completed any Government mandated isolation.
