England Classic

Post by The Fixer » Wed Sep 22, 2010 2:45 pm

I understand there are a couple of tournaments before the main event on the Saturday. One being a singles money in money out and the other is a pairs event. I'm told that PDPA members are not allowed to play in the singles event but are allowed to play in the pairs event. Why are the organisers allowing this?

Is the singles event you are referring to the Early Bird 64 event?

Who said they can't play in the singles all I know of the whole event is you have to be resident on site and can't play in the ranking singles on the Saturday unless you are eligible for masters and lakeside, I hope this is incorrect unless the EDO have made the early bird event part of the new England ranking table, mind you those dastardly pdpa boys have heard wolf and most of the scots haven't entered and trying to pick up some easy money

Sir
I can tell you for a fact, that certain PDPA members, have asked to register and been told they cant play in the singles as Fixer
has stated. Maybe because it would be easy pickings for them?

PDPA members should be banned completely. Why allow them to play in the pairs?

Because:

a) Pairs don't carry BDO Lakeside points
b) it's up to the promoter at the end of the day. Speak to England Darts.

Have to agree with that, you either can or cannot play, its as simple as that.

Having said that I saw no mention that they were not allowed in the Early Bird 64, its not ranked so whats the problem?

The singles is a money in money out event and also does not carry lakeside points. Seems a strange decision but up to the organisers at the end of the day.

It does seem odd. Maybe with the restricted field of 64 they want to keep it for non PDPA members? Although saying that, they have hardly been beating down the door to enter! Still 24 places available according to the England darts website this afternoon.

The BDO players should support the event and not give the PDPA big heads a chance to enter. Ban them completely I say.

These type events should be open to all apart from the ranking singles!
Ian White came to Rhyl and played in the mens pairs and was great to see him, another BDO player who has made a reasonable start in pdc and taken a few scalps.
Did the pdpa ask tommy Thompson I will have chat when I see him Friday nite and get to bottom of this

yes tommy was asked and said they could play in the pairs only. what's the point, they are only interested in taking money from BDO players.

Or maybe they just want to play competitive darts on a PDC blank weekend?
