Welcome to the Vancouver Dart Association
VANCOUVER DARt ASSOCIATION Overview
The Vancouver Dart Association, or VDA as it’s commonly referred to, is a non-profit society that was established in May 1984 to promote and organize darts in the Vancouver area. The VDA organizes and oversees the Tuesday Night Dart League, which is a fun, recreational dart league for men and women of all abilities. The VDA also organizes and runs several dart tournaments, including the world ranked Greater Vancouver Open, Canada's largest open dart tournamment.
TUESDAY NIGHT DART LEAGUE
The Tuesday Night Dart League has been a great way for men & women to enjoy fun, competitive
darts in a team format for over 30 years. If you enjoy playing darts, team competition, meeting new people, and are looking to have a lot of fun, VDA’s Tuesday Night Dart League is your perfect score!
The VDA Tuesday Night Dart League season operates typically from mid September through to late March or early April. Playoffs usually are completed by the end of April, depending on the number of teams & divisions. Team registration deadline is early September. The league schedule for the entire season is created one week prior to season start. Check our website for the latest updates & information.
With a division format, our league accommodates male & female players of all skills and experience. Whether you are a beginner or a 30 year veteran sharpshooter, there’s a division that will fit your skill level. This season, all teams will play each other once in a round robin format to determine a team's divional placement by using total wins to determine seedings and divisions. Each division will have 4-8 teams depending upon the total number of teams and overall skills. Once determined, all teams will play the remaining games against teams with similar skills in their respective division. This format ensures that their is a competitive balance within a division and the league.
Teams are allowed a maximum of 10 players and must play a minimum of 6 players per match. Each team must play a minimum of two female players per match. This allows flexibility for teams to carry regular and/or part-time players on their roster.
Game & Match Format
All league dart games are of Single In/Double Out format. Each scheduled match consists of four Team games of 3 players, six Doubles games, and six Singles games. The Doubles and Singles are best of three. A total of sixteen points (wins) are available per match. Click here to view and download our league scoresheet.
Standings & Statistics
Match results, standings and individual achievements for High Score, High Finish & 180’s are
updated weekly on our website.
There are several venues in or near Vancouver that host and/or sponsor teams. In most cases, the venue will sponsor & pay for a portion or all of the team’s players’ membership cost. In return, the venue will benefit from the revenue generated by the players throughout the season.
Annual Awards Banquet
At season’s end, the VDA holds an Awards Banquet to recognize team and individual accomplishments. Awards for team results are presented for both regular season and the playoffs. Individuals are recognized for 180s, High Score, and High Finish for league play, as well as VDA Shoots.
The Awards Banquet also features great food, live music, dancing, door prizes and a well stocked bar. Each member may bring a guest to join them in the festivities.
We are always looking to expand our membership and are always seeking to recruit players of all skills & experience. We have roster space available on a few teams, so if you are interested in joining our dart community, there are currently opportunities available.
How to Join
There are primarily two different ways to start playing darts in the Tuesday Night Dart League. If you already play darts regularly with a few of your friends or other dart players, you may want to consider forming a new team. The VDA can help you put a team together and provide assistance with getting a home venue.
If you seek to join in the Tuesday night fun as an individual, you can most likely find a spot on an existing team. Often existing teams have an open roster spot or two, and are looking to fill their roster size to the maximum of 10 players.
