The equipment:

We undertake to provide you with the appropriate equipment for your safety:- plastron, mask, glove, jacket*.

You need to bring:

  • a T-shirt;
  • trainers (non-marking soles for the gym. We recommend a pair with low ankle cut-outs, such as squash or badminton type, in order to allow a full rotation of your ankle);
  • and jogging bottoms with pockets that can be zipped shut, or are sewn shut, or better still- no pockets. This is because of BFA regulations. Any other trouser will not be allowed.

Select the headings below to see further details of the basic equipment and to point out the particular requirements for fencing.

(There are specific technical data as to the required strength and construction of these materials, all available from the British Fencing Association,the governing body of the sport in the U.K.)
