American Darts Organization (ADO)

MMDL is a charter member of the American Darts Organization (ADO), and many of our members appear at the top of the ADO rankings every year.  All MMDL members are automatically ADO members for the calendar year in which they participate (your dues are covered by MMDL).  MMDL is a part of ADO Region 5-1. 

Visit the ADO website for additional information.

How to participate in the ADO -- The ADO is mainly for serious players who wish to compete in nationally sanctioned competitions, but is also available to players of all levels who wish to compete.  The ADO runs many regional events throughout the year.  Winners of these events earn paid trips to ADO national competitions to compete against the top players from around the USA.  All participants have the chance to earn ranking points just by participating in any ADO events, both local and national.   Many large open tournaments also offer ADO points if they secure sanctioning.  At the highest level, some players may earn a chance to represent the USA in International competitions.

Many people find the ADO program unclear.  Below is how YOU, as an MMDL member, can take advantage of what the ADO offers:

* FREE ADO Qualifiers - For each Regional Tournament, the MMDL holds a qualifier tournament with no entry fee required and all MMDL members in good standing are eligible to participate.  The MMDL will pay a player's $110 ADO fee to participate in the subsequent Regional Tournament according to the following participation ratio (you may be asked onsite if you wish to contribute $10 into a pool to send additional players, but this is completely optional):

  • 1 to 7 Men/Women = 1 player sent to regional
  • 8 to 15 Men/Women = 2 players sent to regional
  • 15 + Men/Women = 3 players sent to regional

The format of these events is Round-Robin, same format as the Regionals, which can be a very full day of play (winners of qualifiers have played as many as 54 legs starting at 12noon and ending about 9:30-10pm), so participants must be prepared to stay for the full event.  These qualifiers are held in a rotational pattern around each of the four MMDL areas, and are administrated by the league ADO representatives listed on the right.

ADO Regional Tournaments (see list on the right) - Regional tournaments are held once per quarter.  Winners are provided expenses paid trips to ADO national events held throughout the country and are also awarded ranking points based on where they finish.  Any player who did not earn their entry fee at a qualifier must pay a $110 entry fee to participate.  These funds are used to pay expenses for the winners of the regionals to attend the respective national ADO events, which are held throughout the year in different parts of the country.

Major Open Tournaments - Many open tournaments also offer ADO ranking points based on place finished if the tournament has secured ADO sanctioning.  There are many of these local to New England, including the Witch City Open, Seacoast Open, Port City Open, White Mountain Tournament and others.

If you have any questions regarding the ADO, please visit the ADO website or contact one of the league ADO representatives listed to the right.
