The British Fencing Association runs a system of national rankings for fencers in each weapon and a number of Saxons have such rankings. This is a slightly complex system whereby in any designated National Open or International competion, any Fencer finishing in the last 64 or top 3/4 of the field (whichever is less) scores points based on a formula based on the size of the field, the quality of the fencers competing and the fencer’s finishing position. The ranking is based on the best six results in the previous 12 months, on a rolling basis (are you following so far?).
Wayil Eisa earned his first ranking points at the Mersyside Open, moving him onto the ranking ladder in the Men’s Foil in 415th place. This will improve rapidly as he fences more tournaments.
