The 2000 Embassy World Professional Darts Championship was held at the Lakeside Country Club, Frimley Green, Surrey between 8–16 January 2000.

Ted Hankey was in imperious form throughout the tournament, reaching the quarter-finals without dropping a set and battling back from 4-2 down in the semi-finals against Chris Mason - who had earlier thwarted Raymond van Barneveld's ambitions of three consecutive BDO World titles - to win 5-4. He then took just 46 minutes to beat Ronnie Baxter 6-0 in the final - finishing off with a maximum 170 checkout.

Hankey also hit a record 48 180s in the tournament, including 22 against Mason.
