1-UPGRADE YOUR PDPA MEMBERSHIP:
This is for players who won a Tour Card at Q-School only.
The first thing you need to do is to pay for you membership upgrade to full membership as you are currently only an associate member of the PDPA. This cost £100 and must be paid by Friday the 24th January 2020 at 14.00hrs as this is prior to the first event of 2020.
If this is not done by this time, you run the risk of losing your Tour Card. It is the second item on the page via PayPal, you can also use a credit card if you do not have a PayPal account.
2-ATTEND THE TOUR CARD INDUCTION:
It is a requisite that all new Tour Card Holders attend the induction, for ease of use we hold this the night before the first PDC Pro-Tour event of 2020, so make sure your travel plans fall into place for this event.

To download go to the App Store or Google Play for Android.
Once dowloaded, go to the menu > setting > notifications and click the Pro-Tour button, if you are also on the Development Tour player click that one also.
4-BETTING INTEGRITY MODULE:
If you were a TCH last season, you are not required to do this as it was done in 2019, so your name will not be put forward for this module.
You must complete this online module prior to playing your first event of 2020, as this first event is the next day you must complete this prior to this induction, forgetting, leaving it or not understanding it needs to be done could leave you in the position of not being able to play until you do.
