QFA Rankings 2011-2016

Just out of interest we have put together a Open Ranking List based on all of the QFA competitions over the past six years. Check out the files below to see where you are sitting.

Of course, the only way to improve your ranking (or make it on to the list if you aren't there yet) is to enter the QFA Competitions, starting with our Club event for Women's Sabre and Men's Foil on Friday 27 January, and QFA Open 1 on February 18. Details of all the competitions fr 2017 can be found on our Calendar.

The rankings also show that we have had 222 different fencers competing in our Open events during the six year period, but we would love to have more people on the list. If you know someone on the list who hasn't fenced in a while, or someone who is currently fencing bit isn't yet attending our competitions, why not encourage them to give it a go this year?
