Details of fencing clubs for wheelchair users. Find information, facts, rules and advice. Wheelchair Fencing was part of the first Paralympic Games in Rome 1960. At the Paralympic Games in Seoul 1988, a new system for wheelchair fencing was introduced, which allows athletes with different disabilities (amputee, polio, cerebral palsy and paraplegia) the opportunity to compete together. Wheelchair entering was introduced to the UK by Sir Ludwig Guttmann at the 1953 Stoke International Games, later becoming known as the Paralympic games.
Unfortunately there are few wheelchair fencing clubs and organisations in the UK, most websites being listed on the Internet provide information about wheelchair fencing during the Paralympics and of course the London 2012 games, however the guys and gals of Ableize have dug out the more individual hopefully informative resources relating to wheelchair fencing and included them here for your information and hopefully to help promote the sport to budding sportsmen and women of the future.
