Tony Bouskill Takes Out Fencing Top Title At Fieldays

Published: Sat 3 Dec 2022 06:57 PM
The winners of the annual New Zealand Fencing Competition (NZFC) held annually at Fieldays has been announced after a fierce battle between competitors from across the country.
Reigning champion Tony Bouskill was announced as this years winner of the coveted Golden Pliers by WIREMARK Singles Championship trophy for the fourth year running, while Sander Visser worked hard to take out the top spot in the Bill Schuler competition, named after legendary Waikato-born fencer Bill Schuler who passed away in 2018.
Tony was the one to beat this year as he and his father Shane Bouskill took out the Fieldays Silver Spades Doubles Championship, showing great teamwork and dedication to the job at hand. This not the first time the duo has won the Fieldays Silver Spades Doubles Championship, having competed and won the same championship and award in 2017, 2019 and 2021.
The Fieldays competition is organised and run by NZFC and is thoroughly enjoyed by an enthusiastic crowd - both old and young - wanting to get in on a piece of the action. Each year, the standard of competition increases as does the number of visitors eager to watch as competitors hash it out for the top fencing spots, this time in the December sun.

The fencing competition demands a high level of physical strength, fitness and eye for detail as shown in the high quality of finished products at the end of each heat. Each competitor worked incredibly hard in this competition, and we thank them all for their involvement with both Fieldays and the NZFC. We hope to see all competitors back at Fieldays again in June 2023.
