Announcements – October 2021
21/22 UK Universities Darts League
Hopefully those of you in the leagues will have gotten your first league fixture organised. The league fixtures that are on the league republic website should now be finalised. We strongly recommend that fixtures are played within 4 days of the given date, as this gives 2 more weekends for potential rescheduling. If you have scheduling issues and want to reorganise a fixture outside of this timeframe, please let us know ASAP. In most cases, this will not be an issue, but we want to make sure games get played a steady rate so would rather you keep to the time slots where possible.
Players participating in the league must be registered players or their team risks forfeiting points. There is a grace period of 7 days after a fixture for a player to register if you need to make last minute changes. If a team repeatedly has issues with player registrations, additional points may be deducted.
21/22 North West Team Cup
Due to the lack of universities in the North West region we could not run a full league division. However, with a late entry and discussion with the universities, we are proud to announce the North West Team Cup, which will in short be a mini-league. This will give the universities in the region a chance to get playing competitive games against other universities, and, will serve as a base to reintroduce a full league division in the region in the future.
This cup will constitute of the following universities:
Liverpool John Moores
The fixtures for this event are now on our league republic page along with the main league divisions – HERE.
Please check over the rules and regulations to refresh your memory and make sure those that are new have a look through, too.
Please also make sure your league venue meets our requirements.
NB: If your venue has any specific requirements (e.g. Mask whilst playing) then please make sure any visiting team are aware of such regulations a reasonable amount of time before a match.
“Regulation 5.1 – Handshake” Rule Relaxation
This regulation is currently a recommendation however we do understand that some people will still be uneasy with handshakes, so please don’t be offended if someone does not wish to take your handshake. Please just state what you are comfortable with be that a fist bump, elbow tap or just a thumbs up. As long as there is politeness, and, the spirit of the handshake before and after games is maintained, we will not mind. Please just be mindful that everyone will have their own line and we should all do our best to respect that.
This will be reviewed again in the future.
Our full rules and regulations can be found HERE
We previously announced that the fee structure was to be confirmed and are now ready to announce.
However, due to some regions having slightly different services there will be some small changes made to ensure everyone is treated fairly. However we feel that it is important to announce the general structure in the interest of transparency. The exact costs to each university and deadline will be discussed with the presidents of each club/ society.
