Calendar updated for known Junior events and Senior Satellites

Hi, we’ve been busy updating the calendars for you with what we know so far about the coming season. Juniors looks fairly complete. Cadets – we are waiting a bit as BF are currently updating the GBR calendar. We have added in the Cadet and Junior Europeans as this is currently missing from the BF smartsheet calendar but is know as far as dates go.

Selection points will be added shortly.

For non nominated events you need to apply to enter and we have included links to the required forms.

Hope that is all helpful and apologies to those who subscribe to the calendar for the bombardment with new events as we added them all.

If that is a bad thing please let us know and we can turn off the emails for these major updates. We can’t do it on an individual basis, so sorry about that. We would if we could.

We are actively looking for an even better calendar plug-in to allow you to subscribe by category – Junior, Senior, etc. This one should have done that, but doesn’t and won’t 🙁

Don’t forget to look around the website. Under Fencers you’ll find the different age groups and their specific calendars which all link to the master calendar.

Rankings update

Updated U20 and U17 Sabre Rankings (unofficial)

Now that the GB Sabre World Championship action is over – and what an exhausting 3 days it has been! – it is time to look at what it might all mean for the end of year rankings.

We have gone off the published multiplier of 600 on the British Fencing GB Calendar.

If you go to the Rankings and Biogs page you can quickly go to the rankings.

In essence the Carry Over to next season is 35% for the Cadets and the Juniors is a rolling ranking with some Cadets coming in with 10% of their cadet ranking. It’s complicated.

According to the rules, the new season rankings should be published by British Fencing before 4 May 2022. No later than 30 days after the end of the season, which ended with the Cadet and Junior World Championships respectively.

Given that the detail of the start of season Cadet rankings requires results from the BYC U14 Boys and U14 Girls, to be held on 2nd May and 30th April respectively, we think they will have done very well to get the start of season cadet rankings out on time. It’s certainly possible.

Enjoy this year’s rankings!

Well done to everyone who went and competed and also to those of you who are just building up to your first ranking competitions at this level.

Don’t forget there are non GBR ranking competitions available all year round, including LPJS, Youth Series and now Yorkshire Youth Challenge to compete at.

The England U14 rankings – there isn’t a GBR wide U14 ranking – continue through to December of course.

Club rankings Rankings update

Rankings update

Rankings revised for reduced Euros multipliers

You can find your latest rankings – modified in line with BF’s published rankings with multipliers of 600 for all the European Championship events as opposed to the 1000 stated on the GB calendar.
