Thank you for visiting us today.
Salle Holyrood is a community fencing club which welcomes fencers from the complete beginner to elite athlete. The club was the brain-child of highly respected coaches, Sean Walton and Keith Cook in order to provide a pathway for junior fencers progressing from Fencing Fun plastic fencing classes. In the short time since the club started in 2011, we have grown to become one of the most successful clubs in Scotland, producing 11 British Championship Titles, Commonwealth medallists and fencers at all age categories representing Scotland and Great Britain. We welcome fencers from complete beginners to international athletes from the age of 8 upwards.
At the moment our club is not running due to covid-19 but we are running online training sessions for our members until the time that we can train again together. We are planning and hopeful that restrictions and guidelines will have eased sufficiently that our summer sparring camp can run, although with a smaller number and additional safeguards in place.
Summer Sparring Camp – August 2020
