(Format Revised Oct 26, 2009)  


Last October 21, Solar Sports informed us that the PDC is extending an invitation for a Philippine Qualifier to the World Darts Championship in Alexandra Palace, London, England starting December 18, 2009.

The NDFP will have a Philippine Qualifier (PQ) to the World Darts Championship but we need to fast track the Qualifier given the limited time to meet the visa processing requirements to the UK compounded by a very tight schedule of the four (4) upcoming major tournaments:

November 6-8, 2009:
P100,000 Free Registration Darterong Pinoy, Sta Lucia Mall
November 13-15, 2009:
P150,000 Baguio Centennial Open, Baguio City (Rescheduled)
P100,000 2nd Governor Mangudadatu Open Tournament, Isulan, Sultan Kudarat
November 27-30, 2009:
Manny Pacquiao 5 Million International Darts Classic.

Our window of opportunity to hold the PQ is between November 4, 2009 to November 13, 2009. We need at least 2 weeks to make the necessary preparations for the venue, etc. and to disseminate the information to the public. At the same time the Qualifier should be done before November 16, so we can forward the results to PDC and for them to mail us the official invitation to present and facilitate the processing of the UK visa. Visa processing should begin by the week of November 16, for we will be in Gensan by the week of Nov 23, 2009 for the preparation of the Manny Pacquiao 5 Million Darts Classic. It may be too late to submit visa processing by December. (20 working days needed)

Given these circumstances we cannot have the same format of the Qualifier as before. But, our framework remains the same, the world darts arena is the honored destination and aspiration of all dart players, thus the qualifier will remain open for everybody to join and to demonstrate they can fittingly represent Philippine darts. Again, we will integrate the NDFP “Order of Merit” ranking performance putting more recognition to the top ranked players in the over twenty (20) intensely contested ranking events this year and to give due acknowledgement to the year-long performance consistency of the NDFP number 1 and 2 ranked players. All these players have earned the right to be seeded. The strength of the NDFP Ranking has proven itself with the glittering performance of the top ranked NDFP players in the recently concluded Shanghai Open.

Given the tight schedule we face, the Philippine Qualifier will be held simultaneous with the P100,000 Free-Registration Darterong Pinoy at the Sta Lucia East Grand Mall in Cainta, Rizal on November 6-8, 2009.
