Just like the men’s and ladies tournament, the youth players will receive their player’s cards by e-mail including the match times. All players have to report  at least 10 minutes before every game.

Youth tournament participants must be 17 or younger on December 31, 2023. Players who are younger than 14 years old on the day of the tournament are able to choose between the boys category or the boys under 14 category.

Boys and girls who are 16 or 17 years old on the 1st of January 2024 are allowed to play in the men’s/ women and the youth tournament. If these players are still active in the men’s/ women tournament on Sunday, they cannot play in the youth tournament.

The player card will be sent by email in the week prior to the event to the players and the main booker. We recommend that you have the PRINTED player card with you during the event. The barcode on your player card must be scanned at the entrance and this is your admission ticket. It is NOT possible to have your player card or entrance tickets printed and/or emailed by the organization during the event!

Your player card is also an admission ticket on Friday, Saturday and Sunday during the Dutch Open Darts.

Entrance tickets are on sale and available by clicking here.

Please see this link for the program.

On DartConnect TV and on the tablet next to the dartboard you can see if the winner or loser has to mark the next game; refusing means disqualification for the Dutch Open Pairs, Singles and/or Dutch Open next year!

If you want to go outside during the day, always make sure you have a stamp on the inside of your hand / wrist. You will receive a stamp at the door.

There is no dress code for the Friday and Saturday. Only for the podium matches on Sunday, the general NDB dress code applies. At all times; club expressions in any form (football, motorcycle or otherwise) are not allowed.

There are regulations regarding shirt sponsoring as included in the general rules of the NDB.

All players who play on stage must wear a sticker of the (main) sponsor provided by the organization.
