It is important that players keep to the required structure in order to facilitate the smooth running of all divisions. Players are expected to arrange a suitable day and time to play their fixtures within the week that they’re assigned.
Please don't play matches ahead of schedule without raising a support ticket. It causes us a whole world of pain
3 points are awarded for a win, 1 for a draw, and 0 for a loss. The league is ordered by points, then leg difference, legs won, and finally, the head-to-head result.
Results for the leagues are added to the website the day after the results are submitted, where possible.
What is the Equaliser?
The Equaliser is a powerful league format comprising of two ‘phases’. It is made possible by the GDL’s famous stats system.
In Phase 1, players have been allocated to a division and pool based on GDL 3 dart average and some magic fairy dust. Players in each pool play each other once. (5 or 6 matches, depending on numbers in the pool).
At the end of phase 1, players in all pools in the same division are then ranked by points gained and then leg difference.
Phase 2 - The Equaliser
In the Equaliser phase, the top third of players from all pools in the division are placed into a new league table, called Group 1. The second third-best performers are placed in Group 2, and then the remaining players into Group 3.
Ranking points are given after the final positions in phase 2 are known, with the highest points going to Group 1, followed by 2, then 3.
1st and 2nd position in Group 1 at the end of the season will win £40 and £20 worth of GDL vouchers respectively.
There are also ranking points available for completing the league season. Click here for more info.
