Competition rules

The rules of the Austrian Throw Dart-Liga and the European Dart Union (EDU) apply. Participants may ask the tournament director to present the German version of these rules for reference. The decisions of the referee and the tournament director are final.

The tournament consists of a 501 double-out (team/knockout) and 501 master-out (team, group and individual competitions). The darts used by players may not exceed a total length of 20cm and a total weight of 18g per arrow and must have a plastic tip. A general limit of 20 rounds applies; if this number is exceeded, the winner is determined (irrespective of points) by a Bull throw carried out by each player who participated in this leg.

 

Team competition (501 master-out, 4 sets singles & 1 set doubles):

In the team competition, the participating teams will be divided into groups of 4 to 5 teams in the first round. They will compete using the round-robin system. The order of throw is determined with the help of the match reports.

 

Team line-up:

Both captains enter 4 players and a substitute player (optional) in the match report form. During an encounter, one player may be substituted, but may not be brought back into play again.

 

Order of play:

Before the first leg (= 1st set) of each match begins, both individual players must each throw a dart at the centre of the board; whoever is closer to the middle begins the first leg; and after that, the players alternate. The following events will be held:

  • Singles 1: Player A1 : B1 (best of 3 = 1st set)
  • Singles 2: Player A2 : B2 (best of 3 = 2nd set)
  • Singles 3: Player A3 : B3 (best of 3 = 3rd set)
  • Singles 4: Player A4 : B4 (best of 3 = 4th set)

Doubles:

The two doubles are played as follows: Two players of a team form a double; a team wins the leg if the score on one of their two lanes is precisely “0” and their other lane has less or the same number of points as the sum of the lanes of the opposing team.

(Bust Rule, pressing the “team” button on the dart machine)

  • Doubles 1: Players A1 & A2 : B3 & B4 (= 5th set / 1st leg)
  • Doubles 2: Players A3 & A4 : B1 & B2 (= 5th set / 2nd leg)
  • Doubles 3: If the score is 1:1 in the doubles, the two leading teams play one more leg; if both pairings of a team win their leg, they win the set 2:0 (= 5th set / 3rd leg).

Individual women’s and men’s events (501 master-out):

The individual tournament will be a double-elimination tournament with a winner’s and loser’s bracket (repechage). That means that a player is only out after he/she has lost twice. Up to the finals of both brackets (loser’s and winner’s), games will be played on 2 won legs; from the finals onwards, on 3 won legs (“best of five”). Women and men will compete separately.

 

Scoring:

The scoring within the group follows the points system: win 2 points – loss 0 points. If 2 teams have the same number of points at the end of the group, the deciding factors are first the direct duel, then the set ratio, then the double and the legs won. The first-placed teams in each group move on to the next round. If there is an odd number of teams or groups, the tournament director reserves the right to let the best third-placed team in the group move on to the next round. After completion of the group phase, the competition continues in the knockout format up to the finals.
