YOU ARE NEVER TOO OLD TO START FENCING!

In addition to Youth, Junior, and Senior (open) age categories, the United States Fencing Association (USFA) holds national competitions and championships in four Veteran age categories: 40-49, 50-59, 60-69 and 70+.  The International Fencing Association (FIE) also holds world championship events for: 50-59, 60-69 and 70+ age categories.

There are many local and regional events that also focus on Veteran age categories, so there are plenty of opportunities for people of all ages to meet and compete with each other.
