Every league fixture is played over a maximum of 12 legs, with players earning two points for a win (by reaching seven legs) and one point if the matches ends in a draw.

If players are tied on points in the league table, leg difference will be the first deciding factor. If this is also a tie, then legs won against throw will be the next deciding factor, and any further tie would be split by a comparison of the relevant players' three-dart tournament average at that stage.

The Play-Offs consist of two semi-finals (best of 19 legs) followed by the final (best of 21 legs).
