Information for our members and fencing community on how to maintain hydration and stay cool during hot weather.
As temperatures are set to soar in some parts of the UK over the coming weeks, there are several things our members and wider community should consider in order to stay safe before, during and after fencing sessions.
Fencing, an indoor sport, is not often affected by adverse weather, but the nature of the sport and the layers of kit required, means that extra precautions need to be taken during hot weather.
It is especially important that younger fencers are guided to stay hydrated, as they may not be able to monitor the signs of heat exhaustion and dehydration as easily.
Further information on the expected heatwave, including tips for staying cool can be found on the Met Office website here.
