Risk Statement, 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, but, like all other sports, please be aware that you fence with others at your own risk.

You need to join British Fencing as this provides insurance cover for fencer on fencer incidents and other benefits including a quarterly magazine, either print or electronic. We suggest the Introductory Membership which is free and lasts for 90 days. You can do that now or later

For Covid19 you will be advised of current requirements before you attend.

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

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.

Cancellation

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.

We will also refund if the capacity of the course is exceeded or if it is cancelled by government mandate eg Covid

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. (Optional for Summer Camps).

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.  All Members should take out Introduction membership which is FREE.

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 ClubMark pages. They apply to all adults not just parents!
