Our mixed "PARAFENCING Walk and Roll" events are done in a seated position on fixed parafencing floor frames. Fencers of all abilities are welcome to try this adaptive paralympic exhibition event, which will be fenced at nearly the same time as the able-bodied events, so fencers may participate in both concurrently. If you've ever wanted to try Para Fencing, here's your chance! Contact us for more info.
