Q-School...what is it?

The Professional Darts Corporation Q-School is an annual event that provides an opportunity for aspiring darts players to earn a professional tour card. The Q-School is open to all players aged 16 or over, and takes place over four days in January each year.

The PDC is the largest darts organization in the world, with its events broadcast globally and attracting some of the biggest names in the sport. However, in order to compete on the PDC circuit, players must first earn a tour card. This is where the Q-School comes in.

The Q-School consists of four separate tournaments, each held over a single day. Players can enter any or all of the tournaments, with the top two players from each tournament earning a tour card. There are also four additional tour cards awarded to the players who accumulate the most points across all four tournaments.

The format of the Q-School is similar to that of other PDC events, with matches played as best-of-9 legs. This gives players the chance to showcase their skills in front of a knowledgeable crowd, and also to experience the pressure and intensity of playing in a professional event.
