Information From British Fencing

 You can check series of measures which have been reviewed by the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport to make fencing possible here.

What does fencing look like with the current restrictions?

Step 4: 19th July

The published plan states:

  • No legal limits on social contact

 

This means:

  • There will be no restrictions on the numbers of those taking part in sessions.

  • All sports facilities will be able to open and there will be no indoor capacity caps. Venues and clubs can however, put in place restrictions for enclosed areas as part of their own guidance and risk assessments.

  • All indoor fencing competitions can resume – Please note that senior GBR ranking tournaments are expected to start in September.

  • Sport specific guidance will still be in place to reduce the risk of transmission.

The government has set out 6 priority actions for sport providers (clubs and coaches):

  • Complete a health and safety risk assessment that includes risks from COVID-19

  • Turn people with COVID-19 symptoms away

  • Provide adequate ventilation

  • Clean more often

  • Enable people to check in at your venue

  • Communicate and train – both people participating and those responsible for delivering the sessions.
