The Ranking System Explained

The FeNZ Ranking System is a rolling 12 month ranking based on the 5 best results a fencer has achieved in the proceeding 12 months. Except where specified, the points awarded for a competition are the number of points awarded for winning an event (referred to hereafter as MaxPts).
Points awarded for the other places in the competition are determined by the formula:

points = (1 + (MaxPts -1)*(1-log(place)/log(number of entries))).

Events with >= 16 entries will have MaxPts for the competition.
Events with < 16 entries will have proportionally less MaxPts for the competition.
For example events with 8 entries will only receive 50% of MaxPts for the competition.

The North Island, South Island, President's Cup and all age group National events will have fixed MaxPts, as stated below, regardless of how many fencers have entered.
This is to encourage fencers to travel to those events.

In all cases FeNZ reserves the right to increase or decrease the points awarded for any event with an unexpectedly strong or weak field or that has special significance for some reason.

For age group rankings results may be included from competitions in higher age brackets but not lower. For example the Under 20 rankings may include results from Under 20, Under23 and Open events but not from Under17 or Under 15 events.
Veteran rankings may include results from both Veteran and Open events.

The following Competitions are eligible for inclusion in the rankings:

Known issues

Some tournament results may not be included.
If you find an example of this please send me the full results so that I can update the database.

Some fencers may not have been included in age group rankings
This will generally be because they are not recorded as affiliated or because their date of birth is not on record - in either case forward me the data and you will be included forthwith.
