The first thing needed to have a dart tournament is at least three to eight dart boards. This will depend on how many entrants are entered into the tournament. For forty teams, at least eight dartboards are needed.
The teams need to register and pay the entry fee. The entry fee is divided between the game board fee and the prize for the first, second and third place winners. Each team will be entered on the scoreboard.
The scoreboard will have all teams names entered as the first entry. The scoreboard will show the teams playing each other to start the tournament. The scoreboard will look like a family tree.
The first round of teams will play until the games are finished. This will take a while to complete since there may be more teams than dartboards. As one team finishes, the next team waiting to play round one will then start playing.
After all the first-round games have been played, the second round will start. The players in the second round are the teams that won in the first round. This will continue until all rounds have been played, and it is down to two teams for the first place win.
The scoreboard shows the two teams that will play off for first place. The team to win this last round will win the first-place prize money.
