CALENDAR: This is when all PDC Challenge Tour tournaments will be played in 2023

The PDC Challenge Tour circuit will consist of 24 tournaments in 2022. This circuit is open to players who have competed in Q-School but failed to win a Tour Card. A kind of second division, therefore, for players who want to seek refuge at the PDC.

The 24 tournaments are spread over five weekends. One of those five weekends will be played in Niedernhausen, Germany, the other four weekends in the UK.

Five tournaments are scheduled during the first weekend from 20 to 22 January. This will be followed by four tournaments in Hildesheim, Germany, on 17 and 18 March. The remaining weekends (5-7 May, 11-13 August and 28-30 October) will see another five Challenge Tour tournaments in each case.

At each Challenge Tour tournament, there is a prize pool of £15,000 to be divided. With the prize money, a ranking is established. At the end of the season, the numbers one and two receive an invitation to the Darts World Cup, plus a Tour Card for 2024 and 2025.

There is also another reward for players who do well. The top of the standings have a chance to compete as a reserve player in the Players Championship tournaments of the PDC Pro Tour. If a Tour Card holder fails to register or drops out, the highest-ranked player on the Challenge Tour Order of Merit may fill in.
