Fencing Tournament Insurance
Fencing, also called Olympic Fencing to distinguish it from Historical Fencing, is a combative sport using thrusting weapons like the Foil and Épée, and cutting weapons like the Sabre. Fencing has been featured at every one of the modern Olympic Games. Modern Fencing rules originated in Spain with the publishing of the first rule book: “Treatise on Arms.” In the 18th Century, modern Fencing changed in Italy during the Renaissance period, and then, it changed again with the influence of the French. Today, these three schools in Spain, Italy and France are the most influential in Fencing around the world. Although, Fencing is a sport found in elementary and high schools, it has a longer history with colleges and universities because they are better able to pay for the cost of the equipment. As is the case with any competitive sport, injuries do occur. Importantly, the injuries sustained during Fencing are most often minor. That is largely due to the fact that modern safety gear used in Fencing does such a good job of protecting the participants’ bodies. The most common injuries in Fencing are to the participants’ knees and ankles. These can occur as the result of chronic overuse or sudden, acute injuries. Interestingly, about half of the injuries happen during competition, and about half occur during practice exercises. Most of these injuries can either be avoided or prevented by warming up completely and learning appropriate footwork and utilizing the available safety equipment. Regardless, if you are involved in the sport of Fencing, you are still going to need to have a good insurance policy behind you.
