Senior 5 Nations 2015 (Northern Ireland)

The Senior 5 Nations will be hosted this year by Northern Ireland Fencing on the 21st November in the University of Ulster Jordanstown Campus, just north of Belfast.

To be eligible for the Team a fencer must conform to the criteria defined in the latest eligibility document.

The selection criteria are:

  • Selection will be based on GB rankings as published for 1st October 2015.
  • Four fencers will be selected at each weapon and a captain named.
  • The first three selections will be made strictly in order from the top 32 of the British Fencing Senior rankings. The fourth fencer will be selected at the discretion of the selection committee.
  • Where fewer than three eligible fencers are to be found within the top 32 places of the appropriate ranking, the selection committee can exercise their discretion based upon factors such as ranking, experience and potential.
  • Selection will be made by the Team Selection Committee, and then passed to the Board of Directors for ratification before announcement.
  • Any fencer who wishes factors such as injury or illness to be taken into consideration, or who wishes any other information, including availability, to be taken into account by the selection committee, should provide that information on the on-line Fencer Information for Selectors ("FIS") form before midnight 10 October 2015.
  • The only grounds for appeal will be a material inaccuracy in the rankings used for selection and any such appeal should be made in writing to the administrator at the Scottish Fencing office within 7 days of the publication of the relevant rankings on the British Fencing website.
