GROIN GUARD is compulsory for males at competition and therefore should have one.
MOUTH GUARD is advisable but not compulsory unless for a medical reason.
NB. If Glasses are worn, they must be of an approved safety type. No jewellery must be worn including watches, rings, necklaces, metal hair bands or grips or any type of piercings. If a ring cannot be taken off it should be taped over.
