Aside from the frame and chairs, equipment for wheelchair fencing does not differ significantly from standing fencing; day chairs can be used in practice, and most clubs will have fencing equipment they are willing to loan out to new members.
While frames and specially modified chairs can be expensive, British Fencing operates a frame loan scheme, details of which can be found here, and is in development of a less expensive club chair which can be used for left or right handed fencers and can be easily upgraded for international competition.
A number of clubs up and down the country are expanding their provision for wheelchair fencing – to find the nearest club to you please use our club finder, located here.
