JDC Upcoming Events





The Junior Darts Corporation is delighted to announce that the inaugural WDS Associates World Junior Darts Championship will be staged this December.


With a prize fund of £4,000, the World Junior Darts Championship will feature 32 players, with 16 UK-based players being joined by 16 qualifiers from around the world.


The tournament will be played down to the final on December 3rd. The final will be played on stage at Alexandra Palace during the 2018 PDC William Hill World Championship.


JDC chairman Steve Brown said: “For us, the introduction of the WDS Associates World Junior Darts Championship completes the set. We have the Modus UK Tour and the European Championship, and now the World Championship will further cement and enhance our reputation as an organisation.


“A World Championship is something we have wanted to do for the last two years or so, and we now feel we have arrived at a stage where we have the confidence in the people around the world – not just in the UK – to help provide the tournament with qualifiers of the highest standard.


“Last year, the final of the UK Tour was held at Alexandra Palace, and we will be delighted to see our first world champion crowned on the big stage there this year.”


The overall winner will receive £2,000, with the runner-up earning £1,000, the semi-finalists £300 each and the quarter-finalists £100 each.


The JDC is also delighted to announce an improved calendar and changes to the prize fund for 2017.


The Modus UK Tour will still consist of the original venues and dates for the six events around the UK, but the winners are now invited to attend every event.


The UK Tour will now provide 11 qualifiers (six event winners, plus the five highest ranked players from the tour order of merit not to have won an event) for the JDC World Championship, alongside five UK-based JDC academy players from the 2017 rolling academy order of merit.


Each tour event will carry a £300 prize fund, with the winner taking £150 and becoming a JDC All-star, the runner-up landing £100 and the semi-finalists £25 each.


The top three players from the 2017 Modus UK Tour will gain a scholarship and a free pass into all PDC Development Tour events in 2018.


The changes mean the overall prize fund for JDC events in 2017 has increased by more than 30 per cent and now stands at £13,300 across the Modus UK Tour, JDC European Championship and WDS Associates World Championship.

One of the biggest weekends in the Junior Darts Corporation calendar just
got bigger and is taking place in Essex at the Crowne Plaza Five Lakes
Resort on December 3rd & 4th – with ‘Super Saturday’  followed by the
inaugural JDC Qualifying School for the Unicorn Development Tour 2017. At
the completion of this years Development Tour last weekend, the PDPA have
agreed to offer 3 tour cards for JDC members who qualify at their very own
Q school.

First up is Super Saturday, on December 3. Tour 6 will kick off the
proceedings as this marks the final Modus UK Junior Tour winner of 2016 and
the last addition to the JDC Allstar team. Following on from Tour 6 the
same day, the UK tour finals event will be played out down to the final at
five lakes in the PDC'S  –  'Pathway to the Palace’.

Then, on Sunday December 4, the first ever JDC Qualifying School will be
held at the same venue – with three JDC members qualifying to have their
entry fees secured for all development tour events in 2017.

The weekends events, promise to be one of the most exciting on the JDC
calendar, with plenty of opportunities up for grabs for junior dart players
around Europe.

Super Saturday will see the final JDC Allstar addition and find the last
Modus UK Junior Tour qualifier of the year, with the winner of Tour 6
securing £100 and their spot in the ‘finals event’ later that day.

The Finals event itself – with a £3,000 overall prize fund – will see 16
players also compete on Super Saturday for the chance to reach the grand
final at Alexandra Palace London on December 17, to be played during the
PDC World Championship, where the overall winner will take £1,000 and a
magnificent trophy.

The 16 who qualify for the finals event will comprise of the six UK tour
event winners, plus five players from the UK tour order of merit, and the
top five academy players from the rolling order of merit. Cut-off for the
rolling order of merit is after week eight of season four within the
academy calendar. Thus giving junior dart players 3 opportunities to make
the last 16.

The Sunday will see the inaugural JDC Q School – with three ‘PDPA
scholarships’ up for grabs for JDC members.

Two qualification events will be played on the Sunday, with both winners
receiving a scholarship pass to all PDC development tour events in 2017.

To determine who secures the third qualification spot, 501 points will be
awarded for every leg won during both events, with the leading points
scorer at the end of the two events earning the final scholarship.

JDC chairman Steve Brown said: “We're mirroring what the PDC do with their Q
School event. The JDC Q School is built around dovetailing into the PDC system. From the very beginning, we wanted to put darts in kids’ hands
and then nurture them all the way through, to the development tour and
beyond. With the support of the PDC and the PDPA, we can now achieve this

To be able to Participate in Q School you must be 16 yrs old on
January 1st 2017.
You must also be under 18 on the day of the event on December 4th 2016

Competitors must be a JDC 2016 member to attend Q school.
