A new dawn for amateur darts has arrived with the launch of Modern Amateur Darts (MAD). In an interview with Phill Barrs CEO Steve Brown explains why he wanted to make a difference to the amateur darts game. He also explains why a change to the amateur side of the sport was needed. Steve Brown explains how MAD plan to give amateur darts a clear pathway, instead of the muddy mess that it has been over the last decade. More information will be released over the coming weeks from the Modern Amateur Darts association but already they have the backing of some top darting names including Phil Taylor, Raymond van Barneveld, Paul Nicholson, Mark Webster, Bobby George and Darryl Fitton.
Modern Amateur Darts Has Arrived (A New Dawn For Amateur darts)
MAD will start out in the UK to ensure they are able to perfect the system.
Any Open competition will be able to apply to give points to the MAD ranking system
MAD will not be trying to replace the county system but will introduce an inter-city competition
There will be a points system but not necessarily based on averages.
Yes there will be a MAD unified scoring system to populate league and individual tables both transparently & instantly.
There will be an amateur world championship (well done to Phill Barrs for his interview skills in getting this answer)
The blueprint is something that JDC Chairman Steve Brown started 4 years ago and much more will become clear in the coming weeks and months.
