There are many options for purchasing fencing gear in Sydney and worldwide. If you know what you’re looking for, you can order equipment online. Alternatively, if you’d like to try before you buy, you can buy your equipment from local suppliers.
There are two main Fencing suppliers in Sydney that we use for equipment purchases and repairs:
- Jeff Hardge from www.swordsplay.com
mobile: 0415 919 569
Jeff Hardge has kindly put together a special package deal for SBHS fencers who need to purchase the minimum equipment from year 8 onwards (underplastron, jacket, breeches and mask). You can find the details of this deal here: Swordsplay SBHS Package Deal 2016-2017
Jeff Hardge has his shop set up at the NSW Fencing Centre and you can visit his stall most afternoons and evenings when the Centre is open. If you wish to purchase from him, it is best to email, text or call him beforehand to check stock and arrange the purchase as he does not carry a full inventory with him at all times.
- Jeff Gray from www.jgfencesport.com
mobile: 0419 286 810
Jeff Gray has also kindly put together a special deal for SBHS fencers. The details of this deal can be found here: JG Fencing_SBHS Special Deal_2017
Jeff Gray has a mobile workshop in his truck and is usually available during UTS Fencing Club training times (Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6pm at the SBHS/UTS Gymnasium). If you wish to purchase from him, it is best to email, text or call him beforehand to check stock and arrange the purchase as he does not carry a full inventory with him at all times.
Both Jeff Hardge and Jeff Gray will usually have a stall set up at every NSW fencing competition and they both provide a maintenance and repair service for weapons and equipment.
Please feel free to ask around for advice and do your own research to find the gear that suits you best. Please keep in mind the minimum safety standards for equipment required for all competitions in NSW by reading the rules and regulations posted on the NSW Fencing Association website (www.nswfencing.org.au/rules-for-nsw-schools).
