VRI Club Membership

VRI membership is a reasonably priced way to get into an exhilarating, challenging sport. VRI Fencing Club is the only club in Victoria to offer access to fencing all week long, so you’ll always be able to find the time to train with your squad, take lessons with your coach, or enjoy free bouting.

VRI club affiliation with Fencing Victoria

All VRI members must pay the annual Fencing Victoria (FV) club affiliation fee of $30.

Regardless of when you join VRI, you must purchase the $30 FV club affiliation in order to be insured, and your VRI membership will not be valid until you have paid this fee. If you wish to fence competitively (other than in club or school level competitions), you must pay an additional Fencing Victoria affiliation fee – details on the Fencing Victoria website. 

We welcome members of other fencing clubs

VRI welcomes visitors from other clubs in Victoria, Australia or overseas. Non-members may visit up to four times per year, before joining the club. The first visit is free; subsequent visits require payment of a $20 visitor’s fee.

To train regularly at VRI, fencers must pay an appropriate membership fee.

From time to time, VRI has offered Second Club Membership to members of other Victorian fencing clubs, where the Committee believes that this benefits VRI members. Anyone seeking to be considered for this should apply to the Committee. Fees for any Second Club Membership offered are:-
