WDDA Winmau World Championship

Winmau announced on July 15 the launch of a new major tournament in collaboration with the World Disability Darts Association (WDDA) that will be hosted by the Dutch Darts Association (NDB).

The WDDA Winmau World Championship will be held on Friday, January 31, 2020 as part of the Dutch Open Darts. The same criteria are used for the final field as for qualifying for the WDDA Winmau World Masters. Because that event is no longer on the tournament calendar, the new WDDA Winmau World Championship takes this place with more prize money than before.

The confirmed Dutch qualifiers are:

Michelovic van Velzen
Cliff Ruiter
Arie van der Rassel
Matthijs Wissink
Anton van Hemert
