Whilst the club can supply all you need for your training course it is nice to have your own kit and you do need to factor in the cost of buying a few items if you decide to continue fencing.
Fencing kit is not cheap ranging from £18 for a glove to £100 for a top end electric foil with jackets £50 and masks around £75. Plus any P&P as most suppliers are on line or someway out of town.
For discount and to minimise P&P buy through the club and also see our Equipment for Sale page.
Always ask for advice from the club before buying and beware buying from auction sites and the cheaper suppliers. British Fencing has barred certain kit from certain suppliers and changes to regulations has made some older clothing obsolete. Regulations are also different for younger age groups.
|*Breeches (& socks) These are compulsory for electric fencing|
|Chest protector for women|
|*Plastron (CEN2 is compulsory for over 14s)|
You are strongly advised to ask for advice from the Club before making a purchase and try out the different foil grips at the club before deciding what suits you.
* These items qualify for discounted fees for Musketeers from Sept 2013.
