Welcome

Thank you for visiting us today.

Salle Holyrood is a community fencing club which welcomes fencers from complete beginner to elite athlete from the age of 8 upwards.  The club was started in 2011 by highly respected coaches, Sean Walton and Keith Cook. They wanted to share their love of the sport which transformed their lives.

Their vision was to provide an environment and structure which bolstered people’s confidence, encouraged healthy and physically active lives and developed participants skills for life, not just for fencing.


On 3rd May 2022 Salle Holyrood became part of an amazing project to utilise the old Debenhams within Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre for the use of community sports and arts groups. Created by the Living Memory Association, we now have a large, dedicated fencing space to share the love of fencing with the wider community.
