RANKING RULES

The following will be used to calculate the ranking points for each gender/category/weapon;

    • Ranking points will only be applied to the age/gender category entered i.e. ranking points from a mixed event will be applied to the fencers' gender
    • Ranking points will be applied to individual results where the fencer has reached the Direct Elimination Tableau round
    • Ranking points will be applied to all state level competitions with the exception of FCC and schools competitions
    • Ranking points will be applied to all National level competitions sanctioned by the AFF with the exception of any competition that does not have a state based equivalent category that has ranking status i.e. U23 or schools events
    • Ranking points will be applied to All AFF sanctioned international competitions with the exception of any competition that does not have a state based equivalent category
    • Ranking points for National and International competitions will only be allowed if a minimum of 50% of the local competitions have been entered in that category
    • The State ranking points will be the sum of the Top 5 results across all results over the last twelve months
    • Special ranking points apply to;
      • All National and International events (with the exception of Oceania events held outside of Australia)
      • All State Named events (including the Robyn Chaplin Memorial Tournament) and State Championships
    • All events that are not specifically included in the special ranking points category will have 'Normal' ranking points applied
    • A multiplier will be applied to all results based on the number of gender entered into the competition
    • Where an FSA event is cancelled due to insufficient numbers, those fencers registered by the prescribed cut off time will receive one ranking point for that gender/category/weapon
    • Where a State based gender/category/weapon event is not run at any time during the calendar year due to insufficient numbers, no ranking award will be given irrespective of any cancelled ranking points awarded
    • Where a mixed gender direct elimination competition is run as prescribed by the Competition Gender Policy, ranking points will be awarded based on the results of the mixed competition
