Covid-19: Coming out of lockdown
As we come out of lockdown, it is important to follow the UK Government guidelines. It is strongly recommended that you study the British Fencing website, there is plenty of specific fencing related advice and guidance, for part time/full time coaches and for clubs. This advice and guidance will be updated on a regular basis so keep checking back. You must keep yourself, your fencers, your club and fellow coaches safe and well.
Prof. Peter Northam, President.
