As with all these notices, this is subject to change depending on current circumstances, etc.
Training is now cancelled until further notice.
All sports clubs and facilities have been asked to close, so we are no longer able to fence. Normal training will resume when we are allowed to do so.
All Training during the school holidays is cancelled.
Public activities including This Girl Can and Active April are cancelled.
The club committee will assess the situation at the end of the school holidays and advise members with regard to Term 2 training.
Practice good hygiene. Wash your hands regularly, we have soap&water in the bathrooms, and hand sanitiser on the admin table. Bring your own if you can.
You do not need to shake hands. At the end of matches simply salute.
We will be avoiding warm-up games and activities that involve close contact.
Shared equipment is probably the greatest transmission risk at fencing, so we need to ensure one person to one set of kit per clean. We will do our best to provide this for those who need it, but it means our capacity to bring in new members is significantly reduced.
So, now is a really good time to buy your own kit. Especially masks and gloves. We will facilitate orders for term 2 – check for e-mail on the subject.
Please make sure you only pick up your mask to fence with, pay attention.
If you are sick please stay home. We will try to arrange make-up sessions/lessons for you when you are well.
