It is a requirement of British Fencing insurance regulations that all participants must have British Fencing Membership. For beginners, this is free for 90 days through their Introduction Membership. St Albans Fencing Club will register all beginners with British Fencing 1 week before the course date. If you register less than a week before the course starts you’ll need to register for membership and insurance separately (we can help you). Aside from this initial enrolment, St Albans Fencing Club are not responsible for ensuring those training with the club have personal insurance.
Those who continue fencing after their free 90 day Introduction Membership expires will need to upgrade to British Fencing Starter Membership to ensure they have their own insurance.
