Return to Fencing – Resources to Support Clubs

In this section of the website we will be collating resources designed to support clubs as they create their own Return to Fencing Plans.  These resources are intended to be sufficiently generic to be adapted by clubs in accordance with local government and (when they open) indoor facility operators.

If having read the guidance you have any questions please fill out this form.

If you have any views on additional resources which would be useful (or are willing to share any of your own best practice resources to the wider fencing community) please email hannah.gavin@britishfencing.com.

Risk Assessments

All Clubs must have a Club Risk Assessment in place before resuming activity and these must be reviewed regularly (in light of latest guidance) and implementation of mitigation plans monitored.

Sample Club Risk Assessment 12th April 2021

This document is also only one example of how risks can be documented and mitigation measures recorded, clubs can simplify or change this according to their needs. Risk assessments (Club or Session) must be retained for insurance purposes.

Clubs can also upload their Risk Assessments to the membership platform, follow the instructions here.

Please check out our video here for more guidance on Risk Assessments.

As always, we welcome feedback – what have we missed, what isn’t clear? Email hannah.gavin@britishfencing.com and let us know.
