To fence you will need the following equipment:
Protective clothing: glove, mask, jacket, breeches and under plastron
When fencing with electric scoring boxes you will also need weapon based clothing:
Foil -electric jacket (lame)
Epee -electric skirt/apron (lame) -this covers target from the waist down, legs and fencing chair.
Protective equipment will need to be up to current safety standards. The fencing chair will need to conform to the rules laid down for wheelchair fencing.
Wheelchair fencing frames cost upwards of £3,000 however several clubs and centres (notably Bristol Blades, Touche Fencing Club in Milton Keynes, Leon Paul London, and Durham University) already have these. In the case that a club or centre is not locally available, funding can be sought to meet the cost of the frame and associated equipment required.
