Autumn 2020 Re-opening, under Covid-19 Restrictions

From September 2020 we opened cautiously to ensure we had the right measures in place to help minimise the spread of the Coronavirus.  We also complied with British Fencing Association Covid-19 guidance, updates to which can be seen on their website here.  The measures we put in place can be seen on our Covid-19 Page.

There were a number of changes to the way we ran 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 1/2 hour, so fencing sessions will run from 7.00-9.30 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 page.
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.
