THE Professional Darts Players Association is set up to look after the interests of professional players through its annually-elected Board, which is headed by Chairman Peter Manley and Chief Executive Alan Warriner-Little.
Initially formed in the early 1980's, the PDPA was reconstituted under the auspices of the Sports Industries Federation in 2001.
Membership of the PDPA is open to all players of the appropriate standard, who from 2011 onwards would need to first earn a PDC ProTour card at Qualifying School to play full-time on the PDC circuit, with players who fail to win a Tour Card earning Associate Member status.
Players can also join the PDPA during a year as a "Challenge Tour Only Member", permitting them to compete in PDC Unicorn Challenge Tour events.
Application forms for PDPA Membership, and further details, are available at www.pdpa.co.uk.
