Ranking Systems Explained

 

PDC Order of Merit

PDCThis ranking system came into effect after the World Championship in January 2007 and is based on prize money won over two years for the main Order of Merit and separate one-year rankings for other PDC Pro Tour events.

The Order of Merit is calculated on prize money won by players over a two-year period and is added to each player's total at the conclusion of each tournament.

All Pro Tour prize money shall count for two years and be removed from the main Order of Merit on the second anniversary of it being won, regardless of the corresponding position in the calendar of any events.

Prize money won in Premier Events will count for a period of two corresponding tournaments so as to ensure no Premier Event counts three times at any point on a player's total. If an event lapses from the PDC calendar, prize money won will last for two calendar years.

PDC Pro Tour Order of Merit

Previously known as the PDPA Players Championship Order of Merit, the ProTour Order of Merit and includes prize money won in Players Championship events, UK Open Qualifiers and European Tour events.

The Players Championship Order of Merit is the basis for qualification for major tournaments such as the World Matchplay, World Grand Prix and Ladbrokes World Darts Championship, as well as the annual Players Championship Finals. A one-year Rolling Players Championship Order of Merit is used for seedings for Players Championship events.

UK Open Order of Merit

UK Open Order of Merit is made up over eight Qualifying events, the top 96 players (plus ties) from this Order of Merit, who have played in at least two Qualifiers, qualify for UK Open Televised Finals in June at the Reebok Stadium.

 
WDF World Rankings

wdfTwo World Ranking Tables, one for Men, and one for Women, are issued annually in January, based on the points obtained in the preceding calendar year.

A player's Ranking shall be determined by the sum of points obtained from WDF Ranked darts events. Points are only awarded to players winning at least one match in any
respective event, unless specified otherwise.

WDF Ranking events are the 'Singles' events in the WDF World Cup, and the Women’s World Cup, the 'Singles' events in the WDF Area Cups such as the Americas Cup, the Asia/Pacific Cup, the Europe Cup, and Individual events such as the World Masters, World Professional Championships and the Zuiderduin Masters.
