Kit rental
Fencers who’ve been coming to the club on Mondays and/or Thursdays for more than two terms have to rent any fencing clothing they require from us. The exception is Sunday – fencers coming to any of our classes on this day who have not yet rented kit do not need to do so; those who have already rented kit can continue to do so if they wish or revert to borrowing on the day. Please note that RTWFC kit should not be used at another club and should only be used at competitions when representing RTWFC.

Per term, the charges are: Mask £10; Glove, Jacket, Plastron (unless intergrated in jacket) & Breeches (14 & over only) £5 each.
