Tournament Rules

CODE OF CONDUCT

Players shall, at all times, behave in a proper and correct manner consistent with their status. Players shall not do anything which is likely to intimidate, offend, insult, humiliate or discriminate against any other person on the grounds of disability, religion, race, colour or national or ethnic origin, sex or sexual orientation.

Players will comply with and act in accordance with all reasonable instruction of the Tournament Director or any other Tournament Official.

Players must comply with the entry terms and conditions of each Tournament in which they have entered.

Players may not, before or during a Darts Event, make an agreement to produce a particular score or situation within a match or to share prize money between those players irrespective of the result. Any players influencing a result shall be disqualified immediately.

GENERAL PLAYING RULES

Players shall provide their own darts.

Any Player failing to comply with any of these General Playing Rules during a Darts Event shall be liable to disqualification from that Event at the discretion of the Tournament Director. The Tournament Directors decision is final and there are no forms of appeal.

Darts shall be retrieved from the dartboard by the throwing Player but only after the score has been called by the Referee or recorded by the Marker. A protest about the score attained or called, after the retrieval of the darts from the board, may not be upheld.

All scores and subtractions made should be checked by the Referee, the Marker and the Players after each Throw and, where practicable, before the next Player’s Throw commences. All requests by a Player to check his or her own score recorded, or subtraction made, must be made before that Player’s next Throw, and in any event such requests can only relate to that Player’s last completed Throw.

All requests by an Opponent to check the score recorded, or subtraction made, of another Player must be made before the Opponent’s second Throw following the Throw in relation to which the alleged error occurred.

Errors in arithmetic shall stand as displayed on the scoreboard unless corrected prior to the next Throw of the Player whose score is in error, or prior to the second Throw of the Opponent following the Throw in relation to which the alleged error occurred.

The actual score required by a Player must be shown on the score board, clearly visible at eye level in front of the Players and the Referee.

The Promoter reserves the right to cancel or change any date, Tournament Venue and scheduled Darts Event without prior notice.

Unless stated otherwise all (three) Darts Events shall be run on a knockout basis.

No Player that has been knocked out of a Darts Event shall play again in that Darts Event either as a substitute Player, except in those circumstances when a breach of the General Playing Rules has occurred which has materially affected the losing Player, such breach not having been occasioned by the losing Player. The Promoter may, in its own discretion, reinstate the Player in the Darts Event either in substitution for or in addition to the winning Player.

TOURNAMENT AND CHAMPIONSHIP PLAYING RULES

Any Player not fulfilling the playing commitments of the Darts Event by failing to complete all scheduled matches, including the finals, shall forfeit the right to receive any trophies, prizes or prize monies that may be due in relation to that Darts Tournament. Furthermore if this scenario occurred, the losing player from the proceeding round would be reinstated into the tournament and in the case of the final be declared the Champion.

ENTRY

All entries are to be made on official entry forms which must be accurately completed and returned to the Promoter. Any entry form found to be inaccurately completed or not submitted strictly in accordance with the requirements laid down on the entry form may be refused by the Promoter in its absolute discretion. A Player whose entry form is inaccurate may be disqualified before, during or after the relevant Darts Event depending upon when the inaccuracy is discovered.

Only the Player or Players named on an entry form as the competing individual shall be eligible to play in the relevant Darts Event.

Players should be in attendance at their assigned Match board when their Match is due to be played and when they are due to mark a Match. Failure to do so may render the Player liable to disqualification or disciplinary action at the absolute discretion of the Tournament Director.

If the Order of Play has not been correctly adopted then that respective leg shall be stopped and then re-started using the correct Order of Play.

If legs have already been completed using an incorrect Order of Play then the results determined in those legs shall stand but the next leg shall be started using the correct Order of Play.

Darts that hit and remain in the Bull or the 25 bed shall be retrieved by the Player before the opponent throws a dart if the second Player so requires. It is at the discretion of the Tournament Director to decide how the original dart is marked. A Promoter can at its own discretion direct that in this particular Championship only those darts that hit the bull or 25 will count in deciding the order of play.

If the darts thrown for the Bull prove to be a tie then both Players shall retrieve their darts and shall throw again in reverse order until one dart is nearer the Bull.

MATCH RESULT/RECORD CARD

An assignment, result or record card may be made out at the control desk detailing the Order of Play and indicating the order of throwing. The Referee shall be responsible for ensuring that the Order of Play and order of throwing is strictly adhered to during that Match.

On conclusion of a Match the winning Player shall immediately advise the control desk, with or without a card, of the result.

The progression of Players shall be marked up on Draw Charts or made available at the control desk so that Players or spectators can determine the current position during the Darts Event.
