It is very important to us at Cavs that we look out for the health and wellbeing of all our members. As we talked about at the last Bladez session on Saturday, 14 March, the club has decided to pause Bladez and Beginners sessions in view of the current COVID-19 situation whilst we set up resources for disinfecting shared gear after each session. As a result, there will be no more Bladez sessions in March 2020.

These precautions are based on advice from Dr. David Hughes (Chief Medical Officer, Australian Institute of Sport) who recommended that to minimise the risks of infection, gear should be disinfected after use and not shared. 

We will keep you updated if there are more changes in the future, so watch for more emails and notices on our Facebook page. We also don't want you to miss out, so we will work out how best to allocate extra fencing sessions and/or credits to make up for the lost time. In the meantime, there are lots of fencing videos online to whet your appetite and keep up the enthusiasm - have a look at the FIE YouTube channel, for example.

We will send out updates as soon as we have a re-start date for your sessions. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at Thank you all for your patience, and please stay fit and well! 

Kind regards,
Elizabeth-Kate Gulland, Secretary
