The World Darts Association (WDA) was initially launched in 2014 – the aim, to be the new alternative in the sports of darts. With our own rules, new tournament concepts, the WDA set it’s aims to bring the entertainment, excitement and innovation to the sport of darts.
The first official WDA tournament was the 2015 Merseyside Open. Things started off well – in terms of entries, including professional player Robbie Green (The eventual winner) also participating. However, due to a mixture of players and team members not turning up the tournament was deemed a failure. The following year, the Merseyside Open returned. Again, the response was fantastic – breaking entry records for Rileys Sports Bar, Liverpool! However, just like the previous year the majority of entries did not turn up and, along with other factors, the tournament was a failure.
After a 2 year hiatus, it was confirmed in November 2018 that the WDA would return, for a second coming in 2019. With lessons learnt from 2016 and with a new team determined to reach the potential that the WDA can offer.
With a fresh start, let the #DartsRevolution begin!
