Purchasing a Fencing glove

Jeff, our equipment supplier, will be coming to training next Wednesday (03/05/17) at 3:15pm at the COLA (cricket nets) to sell fencing gloves to our new fencers as well as any other fencers who may need a new glove.

Jeff usually sells fencing gloves for $24, but for this visit he has offered us a discounted special price of $22 cash for a glove.

Students will be able to try one on for size and purchase it directly from him on the day.

A gentle reminder that all students are required to have their own fencing glove as a part of their personal protective equipment for fencing and must bring it to every training session and competition.

You may choose to purchase your glove and any other equipment from any supplier you wish as long as it meets the minimum safety standards set out by NSWFA.

Please see Uniform – Where to buy fencing gear for more information or if you wish to contact Jeff directly.
