SCFU requires that competitors in all its events wear safe equipment.
Plastrons: Fencers in all categories must wear plastrons.
Breeches: If intending to make use of provisions in the BFA rules for any non-CE marked trousers/breeches, please contact the organiser before the event. Some organisers will chose not to allow this. In all events, breeches of at least 350N (CEN1 marked) are recommended.
Testing: If you test your equipment by hitting an opponent without a mask, do look where your point is going !
