Veterans World Championships - Livorno, October

BVF Secretary

Lawrence Burr has kindly taken on the role of BVF Secretary until the AGM.

Ranking System

The BVF Ranking System is here! Click on this link to see it: Ranking

The reasoning behind the system can be seen in this document.

I have entered the results from 11 events with a wide range of formats.

You can see where you come in an age group or in the full list for a weapon.

You are welcome to make comments, the system is on trial and I expect there are bugs or the algorithms could be improved or the presentation could be sharper.

When a BVF event is published here in the Latest News it will have "This is a BVF Ranking event" against it. This means the results will be added to the rankings database.

Please note that rankings will not be used for selection until we have decided how they should be used and the membership have agreed to their use.

Suggested European Events

Here is a list of accessible events in Europe in the 2017/2018 season.


BVF Committee meetings

The next meeting date is after the AGM, date to be set by the new committee.

If you have any matters that you wish the committee to consider please email Gillian Aghajan

The minutes of meetings can be found on the Committee page.

Competition Organisers

If you are running a competition with veterans among the entries, then you have the option to check that the veterans belong to BVF (British Veterans Fencing).
