Competitions

Full information can be found on all events by clicking on the BISFed Calendar.

The BISFed Competitions Committee have worked tirelessly since the formation of BISFed to develop a fair and robust competition system. The system focuses on ensuring athletes that perform consistently at the highest level are rewarded with a ranking position to match their efforts. The committee are continually working on ensuring the system is fair and appropriate for our members.
2018 competitions will be held in:
  • Ise, Japan
  • Madrid, Spain
  • Montreal, Canada
  • Sao Paulo, Brazil
  • Povoa, Portugal
  • Liverpool, United Kingdom
  • Poznan, Poland
  • Jakarta, Indonesia
  • Olbia, Italy
  • Buenos Aires, Argentina
  • Taoyuan, Chinese Taipei
  • Dubai, UAE
As we move forward, we want to ensure we provide more opportunities for more athletes to participate in elite level competitions around the world. In order to achieve this we rely on our members to bid to host events and do all we can to support them through the process. Any federations looking to host a competition should complete a bid document or email admin@bisfed.com for further information.

BISFed World Rankings

You can read the full report from the BISFed Competition Committee HERE however some key points to understand are:

  • if a side attended their Regional Championship in 2017 then this result must be included as part of their four best results
  • a side may only include a maximum of two World Open results
  • the other results will therefore come from the World Championships 2016, Paralympic Games 2016 or a Regional Open from 2017.
  • the lists will next be updated on 1st April 2018 after the first two Regional Opens (given how close together they are)
  • at this point, the 2016 World Championships will be removed and no longer be eligible for world ranking points

BISFed Competition & World Rankings Manual (v1.3)

After the BISFed Competition Committee announced the new Competition and Rankings Manual earlier this year you will have noticed that the BISFed World Rankings are updated more frequently. To help people understand the changes we have put together 2 tables:

Decay and Removal of Results:

The results will automatically decay 1 year after they have been allocated by a co-efficient of 0.5 (refer to page 22 of the Competition & Ranking Manual (v1.3)) and will be removed entirely 2 years after they have been allocated.
