The Junior Darts Corporation is delighted to announce that the inaugural WDS Associates World Junior Darts Championship will be staged this December.
The tournament will be played down to the final on December 3rd. The final will be played on stage at Alexandra Palace during the 2018 PDC William Hill World Championship.
JDC chairman Steve Brown said: “For us, the introduction of the WDS Associates World Junior Darts Championship completes the set. We have the Modus UK Tour and the European Championship, and now the World Championship will further cement and enhance our reputation as an organisation.
“A World Championship is something we have wanted to do for the last two years or so, and we now feel we have arrived at a stage where we have the confidence in the people around the world – not just in the UK – to help provide the tournament with qualifiers of the highest standard.
“Last year, the final of the UK Tour was held at Alexandra Palace, and we will be delighted to see our first world champion crowned on the big stage there this year.”
The overall winner will receive £2,000, with the runner-up earning £1,000, the semi-finalists £300 each and the quarter-finalists £100 each.
The JDC is also delighted to announce an improved calendar and changes to the prize fund for 2017.
The Modus UK Tour will still consist of the original venues and dates for the six events around the UK, but the winners are now invited to attend every event.
The UK Tour will now provide 11 qualifiers (six event winners, plus the five highest ranked players from the tour order of merit not to have won an event) for the JDC World Championship, alongside five UK-based JDC academy players from the 2017 rolling academy order of merit.
Each tour event will carry a £300 prize fund, with the winner taking £150 and becoming a JDC All-star, the runner-up landing £100 and the semi-finalists £25 each.
The top three players from the 2017 Modus UK Tour will gain a scholarship and a free pass into all PDC Development Tour events in 2018.
The changes mean the overall prize fund for JDC events in 2017 has increased by more than 30 per cent and now stands at £13,300 across the Modus UK Tour, JDC European Championship and WDS Associates World Championship.
We will announce each venues availability in turn on our facebook page. So get your membership now and keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter feed for news on this great offer.
