The 2009 Blue Square UK Open was the seventh year of the PDC darts tournament where, following numerous regional qualifying heats throughout Britain, players competed in a single elimination tournament to be crowned champion. The tournament was held at the Reebok Stadium in Bolton between 4 and 7 June 2009 and has the nickname, the "FA Cup of darts" as a random draw is staged after each round until the final.

2009 UK Open Regional Finals[edit]

There were eight regional final events staged between January and May 2009 to determine the UK Open Order of Merit Table. The tournament winners were:

11 January (North-East; Doncaster): Colin Lloyd 6-1 Colin Osborne

15 March (North-West; Wigan): James Wade 6-3 Kevin McDine

10 May (Wales; Newport): Jamie Caven 6-5 Alan Tabern

Format and qualifiers[edit]

The tournament features 129 players. As in previous years, eight regional UK Open events were staged across the UK where players winning are collated into the UK Open Order Of Merit. The top 96 players and ties in the list, who played a minimum of three events received a place at the final stages.[1]

The Holsten qualifiers and the players outside the top 32 of the UK Open Order of Merit began the tournament on the Thursday night. They played down to 32 players, and they were joined by the top 32 of the UK Open Order of Merit the following night, to provide the competition's last 64. A random draw was made after each subsequent round.
