Baltimore to Host National Wheelchair Fencing Event
10 Jan, 2017
USA Fencing is pleased to announce that Baltimore will be the host city for the 2017 Division I and Wheelchair National Championships and April North American Cup from April 21-24.
The four-day tournament, featuring more than 1,200 athletes fencing in 60+ events, includes National Championship titles for individual and team Division I fencers as well as wheelchair athletes. The April NAC will be held for veteran fencers in both individual and team events as well as Division III fencers.
Competition will take place at the Baltimore Convention Center – a site which has been home to past major USA Fencing national events, including the 2015 December NAC which served as an Olympic qualifying event for Division I athletes. Baltimore also hosted the 2013 Junior Olympic Fencing Championships as well as other key national tournaments. In addition to being the hub of fencing for four days, the Baltimore Convention Center also is located within walking distance to numerous local attractions, including Camden Yards and the Inner Harbor.
