The next wave of BF’s Community Discussion Events have been added to the calendar.
Tuesday 10th October 2023 12pm & 6pm Wheelchair Community Discussion Event.
BF are excited to support Welsh Fencing and Scottish Fencing to include Wheelchair Fencing at their Open events in November 2023.
As part of Welsh Fencing and Scottish Fencing’s commitment to provide opportunities for wheelchair fencing competitions, they will be including an Open wheelchair competition, meaning no classification is required.
The Home Nations are aware that not everyone who wants to fence sitting down is currently classified or is interested or able to be classified under the Paralympics system and they don’t want that to stop people from being able to take part in the sport.
If you have always been fascinated by wheelchair fencing, but you aren’t a wheelchair user day to day, these events are designed for you.
