20/12/2021- Scottish Fencing


Scottish Fencing has received updated guidance from sportscotland as of December 15th, 2021.

As per the latest government briefings you can read the updated guidance for sport in Scotland here.

The messages from the government are clear for everyone to minimise their physical contact with others unless absolutely necessary. For fencing in Scotland, this choice remains with members, clubs and facility providers. If you choose to keep training fencers are encouraged:

  • to take a Lateral Flow Test prior to attending any club or fencing session. Some facility providers may ask for proof of the test or indeed for proof of vaccination which is their choice to request.
  • to clean your hands regularly and sanitise equipment.
  • to wear a face-mask at all times except during your fencing activity.
  • continue to keep accurate records for Test and Protect.

Covid Officers should also take this opportunity to review practices and perhaps consider the following –

  • can the club offer more space?
  • can the club improve ventilation?

Please take care of yourself, your club mates and those closest to you.
