Female players will be given more opportunities than ever before to compete in PDC events in 2021, following confirmation of a 12-event PDC Women’s Series to be played across September and October.
Places in the 2021/22 William Hill World Darts Championship will be awarded to the top two players based on prize money won across the 12 tournaments.
Broadcast on PDCTV, the 12 events will see £60,000 in prize money on offer.
The two places in the Grand Slam of Darts will go to the leading performers in the second and third weekends respectively, based on cumulative prize money won in Events 5-8 for one place and Events 9-12 for the second place.
The 2021 PDC Women’s Series tour is an expansion of the four events held in 2020, which saw Lisa Ashton and Deta Hedman claim places at Alexandra Palace, while Ashton also qualified for the Grand Slam.
