Fencing is one of the few sports that already practices social distancing. However, due to the contagious and asymptotic nature of novel coronavirus,
Fencers must choose to rent personal equipment for the session or to purchase their own basic set (est. $140). This is true even for additional family members who received 50% discount on registration fees.
To rent a personal set of equipment, contact Fencing Sports Club on voice only number 630-678-0035 to share body size and then you will simply attend the first class of the beginner session.
When you rent a set, No one is guaranteed perfect fitting club equipment. The set given to your fencer is at the discretion of the instructor. Safety in the sport of fencing is paramount. If you prefer to purchase a personal beginner set, the club is happy to quickly assist with ordering from Blue Gauntlet. Participant must attend first class with their new set in hand. At the end of session, you may have the club buy your equipment at 50% of purchase price.
