WMDA logo

The Western Maryland Dart Association is the largest organized steel-tip dart league in the Frederick, MD USA area. We have been running continuously for over 40 years. Our 400+ members participate in multiple divisions, on dozens of teams, sponsored by many of the Frederick area's bars and restaurants. Our primary goal is to provide a fun, challenging and rewarding darting experience for all our members. In WMDA, excellence and good sportsmanship are required. We stress individuality of each participant, and comaraderie among all WMDA members.

We have 3 seperate seasons. Fall, Spring, and Summer. These seasons play year-round so you can always get a team together no matter what time of the year it is.

Don't think you're good enough to play league darts? You don't have to be an expert! We have separate divisions for players of all skill levels, from beginners to experts. In the WMDA, everyone can play and anyone can win.

Think it might be too expensive? Steel tip darts is by far one of the most inexpensive leagues to play in. Pool, Bowling, even soft tip darts average anywhere from $15-25 a week to play, and that doesn't include other costs. Depending on how many players you have on a team at MOST our dues cost a player on average $2.50 a week per season. Yes---$2.50 a week!

Interested? Want more information? Contact us and we'll help you get on your way to playing league darts. After all, that is what the WMDA is all aboutplaying darts and having fun doing it.

2.1.6 Playoff Eligibility To be eligible for the playoffs all seasons a player must shoot 50% of the minimum games available per player in the season. Minimum games per player per season is computed using the following formula and reported on the standings page of the WMDA website.
FORMULA: Minimum number of games available on the scoresheet divided by 8 players, times the # of weeks in the season Minimum games to be eligible (and season/division specific calculations) will be published with documentation at the Captain’s Meeting prior to each season.
The following terms are defined for clarity:
Match: The entirety of the night’s play; the total number of games played.
Game: One of up to three elements of a match for which up to 3 points are assigned.
Leg: A segment of each game played for which one point is assigned.
Turn: 3 darts thrown (if all are needed and/or count), darts scored, retrieved and player crosses back over the ochre (toe line).

2.4.5 Tied Match – Playoff Only In the event that a playoff match is tied at the completion of the standard format, a minimum of 4 team members will shoot a 1001 game straight in and double out. All players will shoot in order and take turns score keeping unless someone is available to keep score.

2.4.6 1001 – Shorthanded In the unlikely event that a 1001 game must be played AND a team has LESS than 4 people available to shoot (someone leaves early), that team will shoot short-handed and receive no score for those players who are short of the minimum of four (4) shooters.

If you have any questions, please contact me asap.

Thanks,
