The practice of models escorting male players on to the stage will cease, starting with this weekend’s Masters tournament in Milton Keynes.
“We regularly review all aspects of our events and this move has been made following feedback from our host broadcasters,” said a Professional Darts Corporation spokesperson.
ITV said it was consulted about the change. “We fully endorse this move,” a spokesman said.
The change was predicted last year by world No 1 and two-time world champion Michael van Gerwen, who said the days of walk-on girls were numbered.
However, more than 6,000 fans have signed a petition calling for their return.
The Women’s Sports Trust, which champions women in sport, supported the move and called on other sports to take notice.
