Welcome to the new Scottish Fencing website!

Why a New Site?

Well, first of all, we’d like to acknowledge that the old site actually did a lot of things very well.  Many thanks to Alex Winchester who first designed the old site and to Stephen D’Agostino who maintained it for the last 3 years.

The goals of the new site were …

  • to provide a more professional and branded appearance for Scottish Fencing,
  • to make maintenance of multiple strands of content much easier.
