Ranking System

The Ranking tables are like the ones launched last April, taking in a wider range of competitions including BF Opens and overseas events.

Click on this link to see the Ranking tables: Ranking Tables

Results have been entered so far (March 2019) from 13 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 ranking event is published in the Calendar Of Events 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 for the 2019 World Championships. They will be a factor in selecting the teamGBR team to face Germany in August.

Selection for the 2019 World Championships will be based on results from 3 competitions (BVF Age Groups, BVF Championships, European Individual Championships) as decided by the committee in November. The best 2 results will count.

The table of results will be pubished by Graham Paul.
