The World Darts Federation recognise many darts tournaments each year including major titles such as the Lakeside World Professional Championship and the Winmau World Masters. Through 2007, the WDF had held four majors which constituted the Grand Slam, until the Topic International Darts League and Bavaria World Darts Trophy were cancelled in 2008 following the withdrawal of the Dutch broadcasters SBS 6, when it was announced that PDC players, including Raymond van Barneveld, Jelle Klaasen, and Michael van Gerwen would not be competing.

Tournaments[edit]

Tournaments listed below are recognised by the WDF and ranked accordingly to their point allocation system but are not organised or run by them they are staged by WDF member associations, councils federations and organisations. The only tournaments organised and operated by the WDF are the international Majors such as the WDF World Cup which is held every two years and the continental championships the WDF internationals and the Welsh Open they operate similar to the International Tennis Federation who only stages Grand Slam events.
