Update 26 June: EFC Remains Closed

EFC Remains Closed Until Further Notice

Today marks the end of term for many Edinburgh schools which would normally also mean a move to our summer timetable, and the Wednesday Cadet classes taking their annual summer break. As we operate out of a school our Let is managed by Edinburgh Leisure. Unfortunately to date, we have not had any indication from Edinburgh Leisure or the City of Edinburgh Council of when we may be able to expect School Lets to resume.

We don’t anticipate School Lets will resume before Phase 3 and the start of the new school term in August. As there is still some uncertainty regarding the level of restrictions which may need to be in place for schools in the new session, we are mindful that there may be a need for further delays to the resumption of School Lets.

Please know that we are very keen to get you all back fencing as soon as School Lets resume, and it is safe to do so. When we do have any information from Edinburgh Leisure, we hope to pass it along. In the meantime, for full information on Phase 2 restrictions relating specifically to fencing, please see  the latest Scottish Fencing guidance document.

Just a reminder that it is a club requirement that all fencers must now own at least basic kit (consisting of a well fitting Glove, Breeches and Mask); with an expectation that this will extend to each fencer owning full kit in due course. We would therefore urge you all to consider acquiring any personal kit you may be lacking, in time for when the club is able to reopen.

Stay healthy, stay safe and we hope to be able to resume club sessions in the not too distant future.

Edinburgh Fencing Club
