BFC Open Fencing Policy
The Boston Fencing Club has recently adjusted its open fencing policy in order to provide the best possible fencing experience for our members in the face of ever-increasing demand for our limited number of strips. We are restricting open fencing on two nights per week (Tuesday and Thursday) to fencers age 14 and above, or who have a D rating or higher, or who are members of the BFC Competitive Program. Monday, Wednesday and Friday night open fencing remains available to fencers of all ages and ability. In addition, we are setting aside a few strips for open fencing for youth fencers on Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30-7:30. The complete text of the new policy can be found here.
