Tournament and Championship Playing Rules
5.8.1 Unless stated otherwise Darts Events shall be run on a knockout basis.
5.8.2 Special Events or Multiple-Team Play-Offs may involve a Round Robin process (namely, each Player or team plays every other Player or team in that Event).
5.8.3 The Promoter reserves the right to cancel or change any date, Tournament Venue and scheduled Darts Event without prior notice.
5.8.4 Decisions on all matters pertaining to the General Playing Rules in any Darts Event shall be made by the Promoter whose decision shall be final and binding.
5.8.5 All Players shall play within these General Playing Rules and, where necessary, any supplementary Rules laid down in formal written or electronic communications between the Promoter and the Player.
5.8.6 Any Player or Team found guilty of deliberately losing a leg, set or match shall be disqualified from any further participation in that particular Darts Event and shall also be subject to any other penalty or sanction that the DRA may decide to impose.
5.8.7 No Player nor any Team that has been knocked out of a Darts Event shall play again in that Darts Event either as a substitute Player or team or in his/their own right, except in those circumstances when a breach of the General Playing Rules has occurred which has materially affected the losing Player or Team, such breach not having been occasioned by the losing Player or Team. The Promoter may, in its own discretion, reinstate the Player or team in the Darts Event either in substitution for or in addition to the winning Player or Team. This Clause shall be construed as embracing any number of Players up to and including a complete Team.
5.8.8 If a Player or Team representative is absent without the Promoter’s or the Event sponsor’s prior permission at any official presentation ceremony to receive trophies, prizes or prize monies, then that Player or team representative may forfeit the right to receive any such trophies, prizes or prize monies that may be due.

5.8.10 If any additional expenses are incurred due to a default in relation to this Clause 5.8 by a Player or Team then that Player or Team (as the case may be) shall be liable for those additional expenses.
