Is it possible to book more than 6 tickets if I have more than 6 people in my party?
In fairness to all clients we stipulate that one person can book a maximum of six seats.  If your party is larger, for example 12, you will need to make two purchases of six tickets each. However, each purchase will require a different name and different credit/debit card. There is no guarantee that larger parties will be able to sit together. Back to top

After purchasing online, when will I get my tickets?
You will be able to print your ticket on your own printer but please be aware that it is your responsibility to ensure that this ticket once printed remains in your sole possession.  Should it be duplicated in any way and be presented for entry prior to you yourself entering you will not be admitted.  Our bar coding ensures that only one person per ticket will be admitted.

Why do Lakeside applicants have to agree to abide by all terms and conditions that include their agreement not to sell tickets on to third parties for more than the original face value?
We sponsor the Lakeside World Darts Championships in order to promote the sport of darts for the benefit of genuine darts fans and players. We therefore frown upon those who buy tickets purely to profit from touting, internet auction sites or secondary sellers. We reserve the right to invalidate any tickets proven to be sold on for profit. Back to top.

Can I bring my children to the event?
Yes you can but there is an age limit - children under ten years of age cannot be admitted to the venue - this is a health & safety precaution.  Minors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Back to top.

What about tickets bought from other sports ticket websites?
Lakeside has only ever worked with one sports/travel ticket agency - www.startripper.nl .Dutch and European clients can buy ticket/hotel/travel packages from them. They sell an agreed limited number of packages including tickets, hotel accommodation and travel to Dutch and European clients. They are the only other website/agency from whom we will honour tickets. Back to top.
