Safety Notice - Masks

Following an incident at the British Fencing Junior and Cadet Championships, please can all referees, competition organisers, coaches and officials pay careful attention to the following:

1. Referees should give a yellow card if a fencer comes on the piste wearing a mask that is not safely secured even if it has not fallen off. (This is a preventative measure)

2. A yellow card should be given whenever a mask falls off during a fight.
