Summer Series – The CDC A-Z Darts Congressional

Join us at the Washington Area Open as the Summer Series concludes with The CDC A-Z Darts Congressional!

This is a UK-Open Style long-format 501 event where the bracket is redrawn with the remaining players after each round. Open registration to a maximum of 48 players with a further 8 spots reserved for the top-8 on the CDC Tour Points List after Weekend #2. Registration is on a first-come/first-served basis.


  • Straight knockout bracket
  • 501 SI/DO
  • Best-of-9 legs (best-of-11 in the semifinal and final)
  • Bracket re-drawn at the conclusion of each round.

Registration fee: $50.00 USD (plus registration platform fee) in advance / $60.00 USD onsite for any remaining spots. The only way to guarantee yourself a spot is to register online and EARLY as this event sold out last year!

CDC Bull-shot rule is in effect – player on the top of the bracket MUST throw for the bull first. No measurement – two darts outside the 25 or 50 result in a re-throw in reverse order, as do ties in the 25/50. Winner of the bull starts the odd-numbered legs. Loser of the bull starts the even-numbered legs. There will be NO re-bull for a deciding leg.

CDC Dress Code is in effect: Business casual clothes (khakis or dress pants with a collared shirt.) No denim or shorts. Dress shoes or all-black sneakers are acceptable.

There will be NO drinking of alcohol allowed during matches. Players will be allowed to drink only the water provided by the tournament staff while engaged in a match. Alcohol consumption is allowed between matches.

This is a loser-marks event. The first match on each board will be marked/scored by the last player drawn onto that board. Each subsequent match will be marked/scored by the loser of the previous match.

1st: $800
2nd: $400
Top 4: $200
Top 8: $100

Please direct any questions to the tournament staff onsite or to in advance.

Good luck!
