BF issues guidance on new Tier 4-Stay at Home and how it impacts fencing activities in England from 20th December.
On 19th December the PM announced a new Tier 4: Stay at Home alert level to come into effect in London and the South East from 00:01 on 20th December. As part of these restrictions indoor leisure facilities are required to close to grass roots sport. Therefore no indoor fencing activity in any setting for adults will be able to take place. Indoor fencing activity for children will only be able to take place as part of the school curriculum or part of registered childcare activities, i.e. during PE lessons, after school club where the primary purpose is childcare.
You can check whether an area is in Tier 4 by clicking here.
The government guidance can be found here.
