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.

Phase 1

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. Group 2 and 3 winners will get a £10 voucher each.

There are also ranking points available for completing the league season. Click here for more info.

GDL World Championship Order of Merit Points

Players are awarded ‘Race to the World Championship’ points based on where they finish in their ‘Equaliser’ pool. Players MUST finish all games to be eligible to receive these points. There are also points available for the League Cup. 

Replacement players who join after the Equaliser commences are awarded points as though they were in Group 3, irrelevant of the Group they’re in i.e. if a replacement player joins in the second week of the Equaliser, are put in to Group 1 and finish runner-up, they receive 30 ranking points which is the equivalent of finishing runner up in Group 3.

The allocated points are as follows:
