Saudi Arabia participated in the 2012 Summer Paralympics in London, United Kingdom, from August 29 to September 9.

Although the country sent female athletes for the first time to the London Olympics, under pressure from the International Olympic Committee, its Paralympic delegation to the London Games remains, as previously, exclusively male. The Kingdom is represented by three athletes in track and field, and one in powerlifting.[1]
