Clubs are not just a place to fence. They are a place where people come together to practice the sport of fencing, learn from coaches and peers, and improve. To support our clubs on this journey, Scottish Fencing have created Swordmark.

Swordmark is Scottish Fencing’s Club Accreditation scheme, which has been created to support our clubs and empower them to master their chosen environment.

The key aims of Swordmark are:

ROUND TWO - Club Grants - Membership Focus 2017 - 2018

After a successful first round of grant applications, Scottish Fencing is actively seeking applications for round two of the programme. 

This season (2017-18), SF can support clubs and coaches deliver fencing programmes which introduce new participants to the sport by providing grants of up to £500.

We have 3 specific targeted areas;

Beginners classes - Get Inspired

Following the great coverage in the Olympics do you want to find out more about the sport of fencing and perhaps have a go. See below for beginners classes which are starting soon. Most fencing clubs cater for beginners to join at any time throughout the year so contact our National Development Officers if you can't find a class listed below. They can give you details of clubs in your area.
