We finally got a response from the diocesan centre.

Unfortunately, they will not open the venue in Mackworth until at least January 2021. We are looking for another venue and if anyone knows of a suitable location, please get in touch with a committee member.

When we do have a venue, there will still be many restrictions put on how the sessions can be run.

We would also have to have a registered Club COVID19 officer, who would complete forms and would have to be present at all times.

More information about the British Fencing “Return to Fencing Advice to Members” can be found on the following link.


So, as soon as we have a venue, we can start looking at how we can return safely to fencing, as the size and lay out will dictate numbers etc.
