Out of 24 men in the qualifiers, eight made it to the final stage. Eight have qualified for the finals from the north. The final national teams will have eight players in the men's category, while six women will make it through. In the junior national teams, two boys and two girls will make the cut. Two veteran men and two women will be picked for the national team. The national team will represent Botswana at international competitions such as the PDC World Cup of Darts.
