North Queensland Fencing Academy (NQFA) is a non-profit organisation which aims to promote the sport of fencing in Townsville and the wider North Queensland region. NQFA is associated with the Queensland Fencing Association Incorporated (QFA), the governing body for the Olympic sport of Fencing in Queensland.

Fencing is all about being fit, fast, focused and most importantly having FUN, so come along and give it a go.

Our fencers range in ages from 13 to 80, from beginners to  experienced competitors at State and National levels.

We have beginners classes for children, families and adults and our qualified coaches are on hand to ensure all fencers receive both group and individual lessons in a safe, structured and fun environment.

Beginner Fencing Classes and Grading Courses details can be found at our Courses Page.  Returning members please complete the 2014 NQFA Membership Form 2014.doc

Whether you are looking to get fit, develop a new skill, or compete, fencing is a safe, fast paced and enjoyable sport.

Group and individual epee lessons are available with our coaches.
