Fencing Equipment

U10 - Size 0 blades, 350N plastron, 350N breeches - Born in 2012, 2013 and 2014
U12 - Size 2 blades, 350N plastron, 350N breeches - Born in 2010 and 2011

U16 - Size 5 blades, 800N plastron, 350N breeches - Born in 2006 and 2007

Everyone should have a minimum of two working weapons. Ideally, if fencing foil a foil mask is required however I understand that not all clubs will have enough equipment to be able to do this, therefore, we will tape up bibs if required to make it a fair level playing field. U16 I expect to all have foil bibs.
