2017 PDC Qualifying School Entries Open

ENTRIES for the 2017 PDC Qualifying School are now open for players wishing to compete on the PDC circuit next year.

The PDC Qualifying School gives ANY darts player their chance to win a PDC Tour Card, with the event being held over four days from January 19-22 at Wigan's Robin Park Tennis Centre.

Each day's play, with all games over the best of nine legs, will see four players win a two-year Tour Card, with ranking points allocated to other players based on finishing positions.

Following the four days, 16 players will have won an automatic Tour Card, with further Tour Cards to be allocated to players based on final finishing positions in the Q School Order of Merit.

Ranking points are awarded as follows
9 Points - Last Eight defeat
5 Points - Last 16 defeat
3 Points - Last 32 defeat
2 Points - Last 64 defeat
1 Point - Last 128 defeat

The Q School Order of Merit will also be used during 2017 to allocate additional places, in ranking order, to top up Players Championship fields to 128 players should all Tour Card Holders not enter.
