Tournament details

To enter: Qualifying players will receive their letters of invitation from the SDA in February. Other players should please contact their zone director for details on how to enter (Contact list). Entrants must be members of the Saskatchewan Darts Association in good standing. Entry fees must be received by the Finance Office by March 15, 2019.

The timetable will be as shown above. There is a 15-minute grace period only. Players arriving any later will be disqualified and all results from previous days will be void.

The National Darts Federation of Canada's Rules of Play will be in effect.

Players will be seeded according to their achievements in the 2018 provincials and by provincial ranking.

We suggest that players arrive at least one hour before play starts in order to warm up and ensure proper registration. Men will play 5-6 hours per day; women play 4-5 hours.

Competitors should note that each player qualifying for NDFC Nationals will have to pay a non-refundable team fee of $400 to confirm a spot in the team. The SDA covers no expenses at Nationals other than flights and accommodation.

Double knockout explained

Players will be seeded into pools for the morning session of round-robin. Then the top 32 men and top 16 women are taken out and put into a knockout bracket ("A") based on their total points in the round-robin. There will be a lunch break at this time.

Then the fun begins. Players play best-of-five knockout in all rounds except the final. The players who lose are not done. They go into another (different) knockout bracket ("B"), which will be played at the same time.

When players are knocked out in the "B" bracket, their finishing positions are calculated and points awarded. 

The only player not to lose twice is the winner. 

The final(s): Play continues in the "A" until a winner is decided. That player then awaits the "B" winner and the final match. If "A" wins the final it's over. If "B" wins then there is a second final because neither one has lost twice. 


The SDA Executive check at sign-in (each day) to ensure players follow the dress code.
