French Open 2018 Cancelled

Dear All,

We regret to inform you of the cancellation of the French Open 2018.

Indeed, since 6 months now and the initial change of the planned date, we are having problems with the club hosting this event for the French Federation in the north of France. Today, we do not have any guarantee that the tournament could be held in good conditions. All the indicators are red, and we can not decently find a replacement now for August.

The French Federation of Darts, year after year, has always wanted to organise a good event, worthy of many European tournaments with the BDO ranking. We today taken this decision with great pain and bitterness, but especially with the sense of responsibility that is ours : there is no question for us to welcome players in conditions that are not optimal.

We are really sorry for this change, and all the consequences. We are already working to bounce back in 2019 with an accomplished organisation.
