All participants are expected to assist with setup and pack down of the venue. Competitors will be expected to assist in refereeing where required, where assessed as competent by the state refereeing director.

Competitions are fenced using full whites and electric equipment, including conductive foil masks. Weight and gauge will be tested prior to each bout. Fencers must supply their own equipment. QFA is unable to lend equipment to fencers.
