About Us

Salle Ossian was established as a charity in 2014 to bring the sport of fencing to the communities of Perthshire in Scotland.  The Board of Trustees took the ambitious decision to set up the first ever sabre club and the first dedicated training centre for the sport in Scotland.  The club has since grown to become one of the most successful sabre clubs in the UK, with fencers representing Scotland and GB at all age groups and performing significantly at national and international events.  Children from the age of 5 and adults over the age of 70 take part in classes that include fencing, fitness, mindfulness and one-on-one tuition.  Whether you want to workout once or twice a week, or train for a place on the Scotland or GB team, you'll find Salle Ossian incredibly welcoming, nutruring, friendly and ambitious.  We believe that "nothing works like hard work works.  And the harder you work at the club, the harder the club works for you.
