How to stay safe at Brixton Fencing Club
Wherever possible, please bring your own kit to sessions and avoid the sharing of equipment.
Club kit will be available to borrow for those who are unable to source their own kit, and masks will be sterilised after use. If you require kit, please let a coach, or a member of the management team know.
If you borrow kit for a competition, please let a coach or member of the management team know exactly what kit you are borrowing. Before it is returned to the club, all clothing should be washed and cleaned using the highest temperatures recommended by the manufacturers (and use soap powder). Please read the table at 4.2 of the BFA protocol on cleaning equipment.
