Seated fencing is truly open at the British Open Championships on the 13th and 14th July 2024. Try a fencing competition focusing on the skill at hand and fast-paced blade work – no classification required.

BF is 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, but we 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 aren’t a wheelchair user day-to-day, the British Open Championships is your opportunity.

At the British Open Championships, we have seated fencing for everyone. You can compete in any of the three weapons, and BF will have an RMA fencing wheelchair available to borrow for bouts (please contact us if you have any more kit requirements to take part).

The format used will be published after entries have closed.

Two people in fencing attire with swords in hand, both in wheelchairs, facing off against each other in a dynamic bout.

The event takes place 13th and 14th July 2024 at the EIS Sheffield, Coleridge Road, Sheffield, S9 5DA. For more information click here: 2024 British Open

Why not come and compete? Everyone is welcome, and you may even get the opportunity to fence against some of the best in Britain – and learn so much more about your capabilities.
