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 you have any questions, views on additional resources or are even willing to share any of your own best practice resources to the wider fencing community please email
