Satellite competitions

Satellite competitions

IWAS Wheelchair Fencing satellite competitions are open to all wheelchair fencers looking to make their international debuts. They are designed to provide an early pathway for athletes who may not yet be ready to compete at World Cups.

The satellites have their own ranking system, independent of the World Cups.
