Welcome to the Cambridge Fencing Website!
———-CLUB TO RE-OPEN FOR AUTUMN 2020———
Cambridgeshire Fencing Club will be re-opening for the Autumn Term, starting 10th September.
We will look to re-open carefully and cautiously, to ensure we have the right measures in place to help minimise the spread of the Coronavirus. We will also comply with British Fencing Association Covid-19 guidance, which can be seen on their website here.
There will be a number of changes to the way we run our Thursday night club sessions, including:
1) Online booking system with pre-payments per session only. Club members will have to sign up for each session they wish to attend and pay through this booking system (PayPal). This will also mean that we are suspending monthly and yearly club fee payments for now.
2) Netherhall School’s closing time has been reduced by 1 hour, so fencing sessions will run from 7-9 pm on Thursday evenings (this may be subject to change).
3) Fencing will be within set groups of six fencers with no change across groups allowed during the evening. However, socially distanced club warm up and footwork sessions can still operate.
Of course, there will need to be other measures in place such as minimising close quarters fencing, enhanced cleaning of equipment, frequent hand sanitising, social distancing and potentially additional mitigation steps such as face coverings.
If you have any questions or concerns about coming to CFC, please let us know through the Contacts
Unfortunately, we are not in a position to re-start Beginners Courses just yet. If our re-opening goes according to plan, we may look to start running them in the 2021 New Year. Please let us know if you would like to be updated about the next course through the Contacts page.
This website is for Cambridgeshire Fencing Club, the 3-weapon ‘town’ fencing club of Cambridge. We also have contacts for other neighbouring youth clubs and other fencing related links.
Welfare @ CFC: If you have any concerns regarding the welfare of you or anyone at the club, advice, guidance and contacts is available through our Documents page.
