What is NIF?

Briefly, NIF stands for Notional International Fencer and is a statistical index of how strong a competition is.

This index is used to weight the ranking points given for results in competitions - clearly a 10th place in a competition with 100 entrants, including all of the top 10 fencers in the country is worth more than a 10th place in a competition with only 10 entrants, all of whom started fencing last week!

There's more information on the England Fencing web site.
