Northern Ireland Fencing recommends that all fencers register as members of NIF in the appropriate category.  It gives added insurance cover and is also a requirement to participate in any competition or event/course in N.Ireland.

Why should I join NIF?  What do I get for my money?

Membership of Northern Ireland Fencing  helps ensure a strong and healthy lobby for your sport in your country. NIF is effectively part of the BFA, and by becoming a member you can ensure that a strong local voice can be presented at the national governing body.
