Fencing Kit

Over time, fencers will need to get their own kit. If you’re starting out, there’s club kit that you can borrow – but we don’t always have enough.

Proper equipment is a safety requirement and without it, you will not be able to fence. Speak to the coaches about what to get first, sizes and from where. There is an active 2nd hand market for most items too.
