BDO announce a lift on players restrictions
PRESS RELEASE: BDO announce a lift on players restrictions

The BDO is set to remove all restrictions on PDC Tour Card holders as previously and currently placed upon them.

In a complete and radical U-turn, the new BDO Chairman/CEO Derek Jacklin and the current BDO Board of Directors have passed a resolution to remove the historic restrictions as placed on PDC players.

Mr Jacklin’s fresh approach is indicative of his declared intent to overhaul the current system and make positive changes for the better from within the organisation.

These changes will also demonstrate that players will no longer face any penalties relating to entry and participation at the PDC Q-School.



4.01 Conditions of participation in Qualifying Events
In order to participate in a Qualifying Event, a player;
a. Must be a member of the BDO or another member darts body of the World Darts Federation a list of which may be found at: Full and Associate Member BDO Darts Bodies
b. Must not be serving a period of ineligibility imposed by the BDO, the World Darts Federation or any member darts body of the World Darts Federation.

This decision will also serve to ensure that any women looking to enter the upcoming qualifiers into the Ladies Play Offs in the PDC World Championship will be free to participate without affecting their position within the BDO system and would take with them the BDO’s best wishes for success.

Mr Jacklin feels that this is now ‘the right time’ to implement these changes, putting further emphasis on the BDO’s ‘Darts For All’ ethos.

The new rule change will be applied equally across the Men’s and Ladies game and will come into effect on 1st October 2018.

Ah, the voice of sanity emerges. About damn time.
Guess Q-school is going to be stacked next year. A very good change for once.
Finally. The only one that suffered due to that rule was the BDO.

Please translate it into "my" english.

This means that from October 1, 2018, current PDC Tour Card holders are permitted to enter BDO qualifying events providing they are not serving a period of ineligibility imposed by the BDO, the World Darts Federation or any member body of the WDF.

What does it mean? What kind of qualifying events can the PDC players enter and what does that bold sentence stand for? Example, can Gary Anderson play at any BDO Open (like Czech Open etc.?)
