This means that IWAS is in charge of governing the sports – managing their competition calendars, growth, promotion, rules and regulations, officials and anti-doping.

IWAS Wheelchair Fencing has been a Paralympic sport since the very early days of the Paralympic Games, and was first developed by Sir Ludwig Guttmann.

IWAS Powerchair Hockey is played by athletes from all around the world at a high performance level.
