Introduction

Thursday Night Competitive Darts is a League for players who are more interested in the competitive side of the game of darts. This is not planned for a "super league" level of play, but generally for a higher level of competition than many of the local "fun leagues" offer.

The teams are paired players and will be arranged before the season starts by the league executive. We will be using statistics generated during the previous series to rank the players, and use that to attempt to create teams that are as balanced as possible.

The teams will be playing 15 games each Thursday night from early in September and may continue through as late as the end of April. If you are interested in participating, drop by on registration night.

The season begins with registration on the last Thursday of August at 7:00pm at Legion 271 in St. Albert. The games begin the following week, the first Thursday in September at 7:00 pm.

Cost to register for the year is $30, and an additional $5 is paid as dues each week and to develop the prize fund for the end of the year awards. Spare players are called out by our Spares Captain as needed. So if you'd like to come out and play with us as a spare, call our Spares Captain (check the "Contacts" page) to be put on his Spares List. There is no charge at all for spares to play.

Note: Check the News Page frequently for changes that may be possible as this season plays out due to the abnormal nature of this year's conditions.

Gameplay

Games will get underway at 7:00pm each Thursday night at Legion 271 on Tache Street in St. Albert. Dates are shown on the Calendar.

The teams of two are selected in early September. The scoresheets are made available at the dartboards and they indicate the board number and team pairings for the night's games. There will be 4 doubles games, then 2 singles games, 3 doubles games again, 2 more singles games and then the final 4 doubles games. This gives an early and late break for each player.

For each set of doubles games, the "A" player from each team diddles for the middle for the right to throw first, and the team that loses this will chalk the first game. First throw and scoring alternate for the remaining doubles games in that 3 or 4 game set. Players will diddle for the middle to start every singles game.

All games are 501, fly in double out (FIDO). The stats are recorded and totalled on the sheet and signed to end the night.

The statistician provides updated stats and standings compilation usually within a day (actually, usually within an hour or two of the last games ending) on this website and by emails, and printed copies are available at the next darts night.
