PDC Home Tour rules

  • All matches are the best of nine legs.
  • The player listed on the left of the fixture will throw first in odd-numbered legs.
  • Two Points awarded for a win.
  • Should players finish level on Points, the Leg Difference will be used to decide positions. Should Points and Leg Difference be equal between two players, then the winner of the game between the two players will determine who finishes higher. Should Points and Leg Difference be equal between three players, the Overall Average of each player (across the three games on the night) will be used to determine who finishes higher.
