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.
