• 10 Minute Forfeiture Call. You will be given 10 minutes to start your match from when your match time is posted on the bracket. The decision to forfeit a match is final. It's the player's responsibility to be aware of their match start time.

 

  • For every match, the Phoenixdarts console shall determine who will throw first for the first leg. The loser of the previous leg will throw first in the next leg except on a tiebreaker leg.

           Bronze & Silver - On a tiebreaker leg, the Phoenixdarts console will decide who throws first, and the game will already be decided as 501

           Gold & Platinum - On a tiebreaker leg, the Phoenixdarts console will decide who throws first, and the opposing team will have the option to pick the game.

 

  • Substitute Players are not allowed.

 

  • The dartboard is always correct. If a dartboard incorrectly scores a dart, that score stands.  If a player throws a dart before their turn starts and the dart does not score, the dart counts as a miss.  A player CANNOT manually score a dart if it does not count.  If the dartboard miss-scores the winning dart, the win will stand.

  • It's the players' responsibility to know it is their turn to throw darts. Darts thrown by the wrong player will be considered as lost. Points scored cannot be undone, and the violating team's next turn(s) will be skipped until the order is corrected.  If a dart thrown by the wrong player is a winning dart, the results will be overturned, and a loss will be recorded for the team that threw out of order.

  • If a player throws darts on their opponent's turn, points scored will be undone, the correct player can throw his/her darts, and the violating player's next turn will be skipped. If points scored cannot be undone, the points scored will stand, and the violating player's next turn will be skipped.

 

  • Overachieving. Players that achieve three or more rating points, on average, over their starting rating for an event, may be removed from that event. If the player is at the point where they are to receive money, they will forfeit any winnings, and entries will not be refunded.  Any player/team that has previously played a removed player/team would not advance nor receive money if they lost to the removed player/team.

 

  • Players requiring the use of wheelchairs, risers, walkers, etc. are legal at the throw line as follows:
  • Wheelchairs: When directly facing the board, the wheelchair's body must be behind the throw line. In any other position, the board-side wheel's contact point must be behind the throw line. 
  • Walkers, etc.: The player's feet must be behind the throw line, but the support unit may be beyond the throw line.

 

  • There is only one person allowed at the throw line at a time. No Exceptions.

 

  • At any time during a match, coaching can only be done by his or her teammate.

 

  • If a player is at the throw line in a ready-to-throw position and drops the dart gripped in his/her throwing hand, it is considered a thrown dart.

 

  • If there is an issue with a match, no dart can be thrown by either team until the problem has been resolved. Matters brought up after a match has been completed cannot be officiated.

 

  • If there is a problem with a dartboard during a match for any reason, the match will be moved to another dartboard, and the current game must be played from the beginning.

 

  • A team may shoot in any order, but once the match has started, the shooting order cannot be changed until the next match.

 

  • Zero tolerance for fighting, arguing, or physical contact in any way. If there are any questions or problems, contact the Tournament Director to resolve the issue at hand.
