Sword Fight is back for the fourth time. It will be hosted on the 28th and 29th of July at the Tallebudgera Recreation Centre, Gold Coast. More details will follow but we are working towards some big changes.
Once again the event will offer:
A two day tournament,
Our big beautiful double hall with grandstand seating,
Up to three ranked divisions
(Unreasonably) cheap beachside accommodation for the weary fencer,
New sponsors with a tonne of swag,
An electronic scoring system to streamline pools and elimination bouts,
All divisions to be listed on the International Ratings.
A ‘masters’ division for our much celebrated senior fencers,
A return of Australia’s first women’s division.
As always we will be looking to push the envelope and measure the capacity for Australian HEMA. Furthermore we will continue to celebrate the diversity of Australian HEMA alongside the stiffest competition in the opens.
At this stage we are aiming for Tier One status but are expecting Tier Two, either way you will receive a professional and crisp event in the most beautiful city in the country.
