Risk Statement

Fencing is very safe but, like all other sports, please be aware that you fence with others at your own risk. If you wish you may join British Fencing as this provides insurance cover and other benefits including a quarterly magazine, either print or electronic.

NB. Adult trainees must take out Introductory Membership which is free and lasts for 90 days. You can do that now or later

Become a member of British Fencing.

Equity Statement

Blackheath Fencing Club is committed to running a fully inclusive club within safety requirements. Level access to the hall is available. See Where and When.

Safety and Insurance

Fencing is very safe. Safer than boxing, safer than skydiving, safer than crossing the road! There are some simple Golden Rules for safe fencing and be assured we will tell you all about them.

If you have any other concerns have a look at Is it Safe? on our About Fencing page which will answer any questions you may have. It opens in a new window/tab which you can close to return here.


Membership fees are not, generally, refundable except in exceptional circumstances. Your training course fee will be refunded only if we can replace you with another applicant but we will offer to put you top of the list for a later course.

The club reserves the right to alter or cancel a course for whatever reason. An alternative course at a later date may be offered, or some other arrangement may be agreed with you or a full refund given

Parents of fencers 18 or under

Please review the Parents page and download the Parents Pack. Close that window to return here.

Summary of the important T&Cs

You fence at your own risk (like other sports and activities) but  members of British Fencing are covered by accident and liability insurance.  Adult Trainees should take out Introduction membership which is FREE. Become a member of British Fencing.

Fees are not refundable. Unless, for trainees, we can get someone else to take your place on the course or, in exceptional situations, by appeal to the Committee.

The information you provide is used only by the club and by a restricted number of committee members

There are behaviours which we find unacceptable for both members, parents and guests. For details see the SwordMark pages. They apply to all adults not just parents!
