2017 Club development grants - updated!

Following a review of earlier grant applications, Scottish Fencing recognise that many clubs have been deterred from applying for grants due to the requirement to reach a set target of members. 

We appreciate that many clubs cannot afford to lose money on these activities if they failed to reach their member target. 

In order to protect clubs from this Scottish Fencing will cover successful applicants’ costs to ensure they do not lose money on activities, so long as every new/returning fencer that attends an activity becomes a member of Scottish Fencing.
