The UK Open Darts Qualifiers are back at Rileys! Once again we have partnered up with the Professional Darts Corporation to give players the chance to mix it with the pros at the UK Open: The FA Cup of Darts in Butlins Minehead.
Rileys will be staging a series of qualifiying tournaments to produce the 32 Amateur Qualifiers for the 2018 tournament - meaning that YOU could qualify for this exciting championship, where play is held simultaneously across eight stages across the complex over 3 days.
Rileys qualifiers could be the start of your journey to success. Look at Targets Rob Cross, won the Norwich qualifer in 2016, lost to MVG in the last 32 of the finals and went on to play in that year`s Challenge Tour. Rob secured his pro card through the Challenge Tour and is currently ranked 20th in the World and competing with MVG in final after final. Rob headed into the 2018 PDC World Championship Final against Phil Taylor as the odds on favourite. Rob triumphed 7-2 against the greatest player of all time, cementing his name in the PDC history books.
