- Darts world rankings
Darts world rankings are a system which should determine a list of the best dart players in the world based on their performances in tournaments. However, after a group of former world champions and other high-profile players separated from the British Darts Organisation in 1993 - there are now two major governing bodies.
Each organisation has its own players, and each has its own ranking system. The ranking systems are used to arrange tournament seedings, which will mean that the number one player in the world should not face the number two player in the world until the final of a tournament (providing they reach that far).
PDC World Rankings
BDO / WDF Rankings
The BDO Invitational Table relates only to registered playing members of the BDO, who comply with BDO and World Darts Federation (WDF) eligibility rules including terms and conditions of the 1997 Tomlin Order.
The BDO awards points depending on player's performances within each of its events. Twenty-one points are awarded to the champion of each its four Grand Slam Events - The Lakeside World Professional Championship, The International Darts League, The Bavaria World Darts Trophy and the Winmau World Masters. Lower points are awarded for each round of the tournament reached, and also lower points for the different category of events.
The World Darts Federation also have a ranking system designed to provide a measure of the global activities of darts players in every WDF recognised darts event. It used to be very similar to the BDO system but was revised in January 2007 to include categories by country and by events, and the distribution of ranking points reflect the levels of prize money on offer and the numbers of entries in a tournament.
The BDO Invitational rankings sees the points wiped after the seedings for the World Championship are decided, whereas the WDF rankings are based on the last 12 months performance. Therefore currently the WDF World Rankings give a better reflection on BDO player rankings.
