BULLS German Open 2017 – venue change & closing date 27/03/2017

Dear Dartfriends,

We have important news concerning the BULL’S German Open 2017, held from 07.-09.  in Bochum.

Because of a new fire protection concept – to be respected from the official side – the old venue the “Sporthalle Harpener Heide”, is not longer suitable. It is not longer allowed to have more than 600 visitors at the same time inside the building. As we all know that we’re a crowd of more than 1000 people – thanks for that since years – it was necessary to find an alternative venue. Unfortunately we got that information first in the mid of march, so not only the size of the hall additionally the short termed situation forced us to take what we could get. The city of Bochum helped us a lot and we’re going to make the best out of it. We are going to welcome you at the Castroper Strasse in a correspondingly festive tent.

The new adress is Festplatz Castroper Straße, Max-Greve-Straße 34, 44791 Bochum.

It is only the venue that changed everything else will be as you are accustomed to. So its more a mobile hall with fixed walls and a stable ground than a festive tent.

To give everyone the chance to register for this event we extend the closing date by 27.03.2017.

For more information about the BULL’S German Open 2017 please see the homepage www.bulls-germanopen.de.

Hope to see you at the BULL’S German Open 2017,
Kind regards
Kai Westermeyer

Winmau To Sponsor World Darts Federation Rankings

Underlining its position as the global name in world darts, Winmau has announced that it is to sponsor the World Darts Federation (WDF) ranking system for 3 years for the Men’s, Women’s, Boy’s and Girl’s rankings.

Created in 1974, the rankings provide the clearest picture of the world’s leading players in the WDF system. The new world tables will be renamed: (See WDF Tables)

 

  • WDF Men’s Rankings Presented by Winmau
  • WDF Women’s Rankings Presented by Winmau
  • WDF Boy’s Rankings Presented by Winmau
  • WDF Girl’s Rankings Presented by Winmau

The WDF categorises tournaments around the world. Ranking points are then awarded to players according to where they finish and the category of the event and are used to determine seeds for key WDF events.

Like ranking systems used by many other global sports, the WDF system is based on a cumulative points system on a rolling year basis; when a tournament is played, any points players earned from the same event a year earlier are discounted. Lithuania’s Darius Labanauskas is the current WDF Men’s number one with Holland’s Aileen de Graaf topping the Women’s list.

As part of its sponsorship, Winmau will enable the WDF to present monetary awards to the top five players in the Men’s and Women’s overall rankings, as well as the top three Men, Women, Boys and Girls finishers in Europe, the Americas and Asia/Pacific regions. The company will also award darts equipment prizes to Youth winners.

“The WDF is the sport’s global organising body and we are delighted to be able to partner with them in this unique initiative that will allow the top ranked WDF players to benefit from monetary awards and the best equipment,” says Ian Flack, Winmau’s Sales and Marketing Director. “We share a common desire to see players continue to push the boundaries, and the rankings provide a very clear and impartial way of seeing who is at the top of the game over an extended period of time.”
