Welcome

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.


Covid-19 Update: 31/03/2021

As of 5th April we will be running outdoor fencing sessions for under 18s and physical sessions for over 18s outdoors.   Please check our training page for current training sessions.

Unfortunately we are unable to accept new members until we are back training indoors and group sizes can be increased. If you would like to be put on a waiting list, please email: membership.salleholyrood@gmail.com

Here’s what we’ve been up to over the last year:

We are delighted to have been awarded the status of “SUPERCLUB” by the sport’s governing body, Scottish Fencing, in January 2018. One of only two clubs to receive the first accolades.
