Sullivan Fencing: 2023 Salle Holyrood Open Fencing Championships

Year 14 Alexander Penny travelled to Edinburgh earlier this month to compete in his first UK Senior Open competition of the year, the Holyrood Open, held at the Salle Holyrood club venue in Leith on Saturday 11th March.

Alexander won 3 and lost 3 in a very tough poule, one that included the UK number 1 and number 7 ranked Under 20 fencers. This earned him a bye into the last 32, but lost there to finish 23rd. This was a major development opportunity for Alexander, competing against some of Scotland’s and the UK’s best fencers.

The next event for SUFC’s senior fencers including Alexander will be the East of Ireland Open in Dublin on the 18th & 19th March. Next for the SU juniors will be Round 4 of the NI Junior Foil Series on 26th March.
