They need to cap this at 256 players. I just dont know how they will cope with these sort of numbers.
Agreed. They'll never be able to run 30 of these a year otherwise.

Re: Ladbrokes 2020 UK Open 6-8 March Somerset

Don't agree with the not being allowed to enter Rileys if you were in Qschool. Supposed to be an Open so players should be allowed to use any route. Also will be a nightmare to administrate. In fairness, don't think that many legitimate darts fans would disagree with you. The Rileys Qualifiers are ...

Fully expect an announcement at this event or very soon after re the pdc & wdf working together future amateur wc or the bdo wdf making up could be all over for des & chums in 2 weeks Fingers crossed. As it stands the BDO is a joke but the WDF needs to step up and cover grass roots darts where the ...

Re: Darts in the media

Re: Idea to improve Q School

Is any of this necessary? Are there that many great darts players in the world that we need more players on the main tour or challenge tour? 128 is fine, and because some players like to do a Barney, there are opportunities for the likes of Mitchell to wangle a place in a PC and possibly earn some ...

No idea. I remember him tweeting when he had some heart issue.

Many on here have questioned his sanity but is that a disability?

Re: Bauhaus Dutch Open 2020 31 Jan - 2 Feb, Bonte Wever Assen

Veenstra is not a tour card holder. That's either a huge whoooosh or youre being more pedantic than Ginge, BV and me put together. :D Ginge, BV and I . Oh dear. Incorrect. You would use "me" in the singular in this usage, therefore you also use "me" in the plural. I thought it would be Ginge.

With the BDO not offering points, what's the WDF policy on PDC players playing in this?
Don't care.
But the PDC does.
Correct. PDC players can't play in streamed/broadcast matches.

Re: Bauhaus Dutch Open 2020 31 Jan - 2 Feb, Bonte Wever Assen

However I will say this. 3,300 men's singles entries against 350 women's singles. The "equal prize money" demands look very weak when you see numbers like that. I expect that with sponsors, the women actually get more in proportion to the entry numbers. What are the prize funds for this? Edit - foun...

Entries up despite them canning the BDO points and offering refunds for anyone unhappy with this. Thats one myth busted then.
Yup. Shame the youth numbers seem to be plummeting. Wonder why that is with the other events holding up fine for numbers.
