Every year, about six IWAS Wheelchair Fencing World Cups will be held for wheelchair fencers to gain individual world ranking points, which are very important to the athletes as the points they earn will count towards qualifying to the Paralympic Games.

Sanctioned by the International Wheelchair and Amputee Sports Federation (IWAS), the Hong Kong World Cup will be the only wheelchair fencing world cup in the region and is one of the sanctioned ranking competitions for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.

As one of the fore-runners of development of wheelchair fencing in the world, this is also the third international wheelchair fencing competition that HKPC&SAPD will organize since 1994 and 2006. And it is expected that about 100 athletes and team officials from 10 countries and territories will take part in the event.
