Please join us for an exciting opportunity to try out wheelchair fencing with the Boston Fencing Club and two world champion fencers from Russia and India visiting the United States as part of a US Department of State program called Sport for Community.

Come and hone your fencing skills or experience the sport for the first time! The session will include a wheelchair fencing demonstration, an explanation of Paralympic regulations governing the sport, and time in the chairs trying out the equipment.

All equipment is provided.

Pre-registration is preferred but not required.
