We returning again on 15th and 16th February 2020 with our 10th Darts Tournament

2020 event dates 15th & 16th February 2020



The Southern Counties Open was the fulfilment of a dream of the then tournament chairman Tom Palmer. The first tournament was held in 2007 at the Trinity Club in Dorchester, and has grown in strength to become the high profile tournament you see today, with many thanks also to loads of local sponsors who donate prize money to the tournament each year. The tournament is now played at The George Albert Hotel as Southern Counties Darts and the weekend includes a Juniors, Ladies, Mixed Pairs, Money In / Out competition, before the main event The Tom Palmer Open held on the Sunday, named after Tom Palmer who started this event many years ago and worked hard as dart committee chairmen. After an initial difficult couple of years the tournament is now attracting top quality players and has become a high profile Dorset event.

Of course, players enjoy the thrill of playing for money. The Southern Counties darts includes various cash prizes for each of the tournament competitions to add the 'spice' to proceedings. With a well established history of events we are delighted to say that there is even more prize money available at our next event.

With a wide range of prizes ranging from £2,000 to £25 you can be sure that there is everything to play for! So what are you waiting for, click on the button below and find out what's in store for our next tournament.

The George Albert Hotel is a private, family owned hotel located in the rolling Dorset countryside. Offering all the modern facilities you would expect from a new hotel, it still retains a distinctive friendly atmosphere. Situated on the A37, between the county towns of Yeovil and Dorchester. The air conditioned, purpose built hotel opened in 2010.

With quality accommodation (39 beautiful en-suite bedrooms), they are also an ideal venue to hold wedding functions, business meetings, corporate events and conferences.
