AAA Dart League Players are sanctioned through the National Dart Association (NDA), a non-profit trade association promoting the standardization of the electronic darting sport. When joining a AAA Dart League, you become eligible to participate in the Minnesota Operators of Music and Amusements (MOMA), Metro State Players Dart Association (MSPDA), NDA Tournaments, Partners Promoting Darts TOC, and more.
Players have the option to choose to participate in a Traveling or In-House League. Traveling Leagues play at their home location half of the time and are away for the other half. In-House Leagues always play at their home location.
When joining a Traveling League, you have several choices, which are:
⦁ Dart league year divided into three seasons: Fall, Winter/Spring, and Summer.
⦁ Leagues are played Sundays through Thursdays.
⦁ 301, 501, Cricket, or Combo.
⦁ Women’s, Open, or Mixed Competition.
For In-House Leagues, the bar usually makes these decisions.
The rules originate from those of our sanctioning body, the National Dart Association. An accurate Player Performance Rating is vital to ensure fair and competitive league play. We use the two most advanced Player Performance Rating tools available to date. By tracking the Dart Player’s ability, we are able to develop a bracketed league format, which allows all skill levels of Players to compete against those of their own ability.
Mark Per Round (MPR) and Point Per Dart (PPD) are systems used to average every dart thrown by a Player. A Player may only throw one quality dart during a game, but may be playing consistently good darts throughout the entire match. Not averaging their score would incorrectly state their ability. These two rating or averaging systems correct this discrepancy.
The MPR averages the marks that a Player throws each turn in a game of cricket. MPR is calculated by taking the total marks scored, dividing it by the actual darts thrown, and then multiplying it by 3. The higher the MPR, the more advanced the skill of the Player.
The PPD averages the points that a Player throws for each dart in a ’01 game. PPD is calculated from taking the total points scored and dividing it by the number of actual darts thrown. The higher the PPD, the more advanced the skill level of the Player.
