How Large is the Fencing Population?

USA has some 22000 USFA members out of a population of 320 million.

Germany has 30000 fencing federation members out of a population of 84 million.

Sweden has 4000 fencing federation members out of a population of 9 million.


The median of this is 350, let us conservatively assume that 1st-world countries have 200 fencers per million inhabitant.

The total of first world population is around 1.3 billion.

We then get an estimate on the total fencing federation memberships around the world to be 200*1300 = 260,000 Fencers.

Therefore, as a fencer, you will be among the few elite population in the whole world.
