Spatha Fencing Club

The Spatha Fencing Club was founded by Mauricio Panizo due to a passion he has for all things fencing.
The SPATHA fencing club provides members with the opportunity to learn fencing, (foil and sabre) and to compete in fencing tournaments. We provide training facilities, equipment, and coaching for all levels of fencing, from beginners to experienced fencers. The goal of the club is to make the sport of fencing available to everyone in the local community.
We run beginners courses at the start of each year, and hold regular training sessions weekly. We also provide for individual instruction, and we organise several competitions. Fencers can compete with other clubs, as well as in Victorian, and National competitions.
Over the years we have distinguished ourselves as a club of excellence both on and off the fencing piste because of our professional approach to fencing and event management.
