LAS VEGAS -- The National Dart Association reports that more than 12,000 entrants from four countries competed for a piece of the $500,000 prize purse in Team Dart XXV, which kicked off nine days of soft-tip darting on April 16 at the Riviera Hotel and Casino here.

Some 155 operators, who are NDA charter holders, sent teams to Team Dart this year. Entry qualifications include being an NDA-sanctioned player and playing at least 96 league games in a specified period for the coin-op vending company that enters the player in the tournament.

This year's big winners hailed from Germany. In the finals, the German men's team defeated the U.S., ending a four-year winning streak for the Americans, while the German women's team beat its U.S. counterpart for the second year in a row.

Separately, the dart association announced that it is moving the Team Dart extravaganza from the Riviera to Bally's Las Vegas. Team Dart XXVI will be held at the new location from April 29 to May 7, 2011. "Players and operators will find Bally's to be a great location for Team Dart and a convenient location to other Las Vegas attractions," said NDA president Chris Warren.
