2016 PDC Qualifying School Entries
THE countdown is on to the 2016 PDC Qualifying School, which will be held from January 13-16 at Wigan's Robin Park Tennis Centre.
Qualifying School gives ANY player aged 16 and above the chance to win a PDC Tour Card to compete full-time on the ProTour, and sees play held across four days.
The 2014 Qualifying School saw Gerwyn Price try his luck - and the Welsh ace is now on the brink of a place inside the world's top 32. Do you want to emulate his achievements?
Each individual day sees four players win an automatic Tour Card as they secure their spot on the circuit, with other players receiving ranking points based on their finishing positions.
In addition to the 16 automatic PDC Tour Card winners, further Tour Cards are awarded based on finishing positions in the final Q School Order of Merit.
Players with a PDC Tour Card are entitled to compete in all Players Championship events held throughout the year, as well as in the Coral UK Open Qualifiers, European Tour Qualifiers and PDPA World Championship Qualifier.
Players who fail to win a Tour Card will become PDPA Associate Members and are able to compete in the 16 tournaments on the second-tier PDC Unicorn Challenge Tour, as well as in the Coral UK Open Qualifiers, European Tour Qualifiers and PDPA World Championship Qualifier.
In addition, non-Tour Card Holders will be able to top up the field for Players Championship events should the 128 Tour Card Holders not all enter.
Entry to the 2016 PDC Qualifying School costs £250 and can be made via the PDC Online Entry System;
