Important message dated: 1st August 2020

 

The Corona Virus is an ongoing health concern for many people. The club has taken advice from the Australian Fencing Federation and adopted the measures proposed by the ACT Governments regarding indoor sporting activities. We will be required to limit the number of participants to 15 in the gym hall at any time, and actively monitor distancing rules and hygeine measures.

Fencers proposing to attend and fence will need to have their own fencing clothing and equipment. No sharing or use of club clothing or weapons. You will be required to advise the club on a week-by-week basis if you intend to participate by sending an email to  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  and providing your name and phone/contact details.  Preference will be given to club members to attend, but visitors from other clubs are most welcome (Maison follows a minimum age policy of 16 years).

If the club receives large numbers of attendance requests, we may choose to split the training night into two one-hour sessions 7-8pm and 8-9pm.
