For domestic ranking events in the Cadet and Junior season, the following Ranking Multipliers will be used:

Multiplier* Event/Format**
100 ‘B’ BRC’s using two rounds of poules and Direct Elimination (with or without repechage)
175 A’ BRC’s
180 – 225 Nominated Senior Opens (Juniors points only)
200 Cadet & Junior Championships
225 Under 23 National Championships
250 Senior National Championships (Junior points only)
300 British Open Championships (Junior points only)


* Ranking points for a result are calculated by taking the placing points and multiplying them by a number – ‘the Ranking Multiplier’ – that represents the relative value of the competition. (See points table below)

**BF reserves the right to introduce other formats

All B BRCs will use at least two rounds of poules followed by direct elimination, and the multiplier will be 100.

An indication of the likely multipliers for international events are published on weapon-specific fencing competition calendars created by the ADP once BRC, FIE and EFC competition calendars are finalised.

Due to the continued impact of Covid on venue availability, travel and competition calendars, BF reserves the right (for both domestic and international events) to change the event and the indicative multipliers if events are cancelled or rescheduled, significantly restricted in size (in comparison to the ranking lists) or fall outside of the expected competition standards.

For an indicative look at how these multipliers impact ranking points please see the following table. This level of detail is intended to support athletes when reviewing their competition and training plans.
