Announcement: England Darts/ WDF Gold Status Events

 

 

 

England Darts are thrilled to have two Gold Events in the newly restructured World Darts Federation rankings announced today.

The Gold events carry an automatic qualification into the Grand Final stages of the 2021 World Championships. This is a unique opportunity for all grass root players and with guaranteed prize money at the World Finals adds to already massive prize funds the Isle of Man Open and England Open offers the event participants. 

A further bonus is guaranteed for the runners up and semi-finalist of the events qualifying for the WDF World Masters. 

On behalf of England Darts and our sponsors Bunn Leisure and The Isle of Man Government I would like to thank the executive of the WDF especially Nick Rolls and Richard Ashdown, with whom we have been working closely with over the past 6 months to enable this unique opportunity to come to fruition.

Announcement: England Darts/Bunn Leisure

I have just received the following message from Bunn Leisure today.

Due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the Covid Pandemic, and after taking advice from numerous agencies, their views being that it is highly unlikely that the current restrictions will be removed, allowing us to safely cater for the numbers of people who normally support our darts events, along with the welfare of our staff, the decision has been made that we are not in a position to hold the Golden Darts event this coming December.

We have every intention of supporting the darts events in 2021, starting with the Open in June, if anyone would like to transfer their outstanding bookings, or require refunds, please contact the bookings department. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.


*****
England Darts Organisation is naturally disappointed that they will not be able to hold the event, but fully respect that everyone’s health has to be our main priority.

We once again thank all our members and players for their continued support during these very testing and abnormal times we are living through, with the hope that 2021 will bring stability back to our lives, and with it opportunities to meet up and enjoy each other’s company once again at our darts events, in the meantime England Darts will be planning in good faith for the future.

Tommy Thompson
Chairman England Darts Organisation Ltd

RIP Ron Bentley

We are very sad to learn that long time Hertfordshire Darts Secretary, Ron Bentley has passed away.

Our thoughts are with all Ron's family and friends at this sad time.

Hertfordshire Darts Organisation issued the following statement :

For those of you who knew him it is with deep sadness to inform you that Ron Bentley passed away today. Ron was involved with the BDO from the very start when it was formed in 1973. He was a massive part of Hertfordshire and he played an integral role in our successes over the years. He was the General Secretary of Hertfordshire Darts for over 40 years until he resigned a few years ago. A lovely man and at the BDO meetings he always sat with Dennis Ratcliffe of Derbyshire, who sadly passed away a few weeks ago.

Our heartfelt condolences go to his wife Sylvia and the rest of his family at this very sad time.

RIP Ron. From all the committee, players and supporters of the HCDO.

The Tri Nations have released new updated information, this can be reviewed by using the link below.

Tri Nations Information


1st May 2020

''Today the Tri-Nations publish their vision for the future of grass-root darts; it is quite a comprehensive document. The executive of the Tri-Nations has tried to address many of the concerns of grass-root dart players, whilst keeping in place the integrity of the system.
Although we are all unsure, when any plans can be implemented due to the current pandemic, the Tri-Nations executive feel that is imperative , that plans are in place once the sport of darts returns to normal.
We urge all officials and players to study the plans we are putting forward, plans which have been fully costed, and are a viable way forward, for everyone, should they choose to join us. It would be helpful to gauge some sort of support, to enable us to go into the market place confident we have a product on offer, which is supported by you the players."

Tri Nations Vision For The Future - Read Now

On Behalf of the Tri-Nations Darts Ltd.

"A Path for the Future"

Though no-one can know how long the Covid 19 crisis will last or how seriously the affects will have on our lives generally and or in darts specifically. However the newly appointed executive of Tri-Nations Darts felt that the following statement of intent was appropriate at this time.

As we are all aware there has been considerable uncertainty concerning the future of the BDO these past few months and it's a situation that worsened with the recent abdication of the majority of their directors.

Without dwelling on the well-publicised reasons for this continuing uncertainty, members interests have clearly not been best served with the ongoing lack of transparency or information, more so since the publication of their latest accounts, during which even our own auditors questioned the company’s ability to continue as a going concern, a point perhaps endorsed further by these resignations. 

As a direct consequence to the auditors alarming warnings, the Tri-Nations have been working these past few weeks to put together an alternative proposal which will hopefully provide a viable and sustainable future for grass roots darts in Britain. 
 
This proposal has been very accurately costed to ensure all members can have that future free from the threats of possible litigation and significantly, free from the damaging consequences that all the recent adverse publicity has caused. 
 
If the members so choose, it will also allow us all to move forward together and when doing so protect the core events that we have all spent so many years enjoying and supporting. 
 
Without making any unrealistic promises we all feel – as a new entity, that the new beginning this proposal could provide will also hopefully afford all members of Tri Nations Darts to negotiate and explore fresh contracts and sponsorship possibilities and do so unsullied by the damaging reputation that currently dominates our side of darts. 
 
We obviously accept these potential opportunities can only be explored if and once the proposal is accepted by a majority of the three country’s current county members, and once the level of support has been ascertained, we will at the earliest opportunity and “national crisis permitting” then organise a meeting to openly discuss everything in more detail. 

In the meanwhile we do ensure everyone that we will update everyone with any progress and do so in the hope that everything if accepted it could mean everything is in place for the new season - September/October 2020.

ENGLAND DARTS ANNOUNCEMENTS
British Internationals   England Open   England Youth GP
After due consideration of the current Covid-19 virus pandemic, and our overriding duty of care to our players and officials, we have reluctantly decided that the 2020 British Darts International Championships will be postponed. A new date will be sought once the immediate crisis and the uncertainties have passed.

All players currently selected will retain their places at the new date. After discussions with the holiday park all bookings for the holiday park will be honoured for the new date as will the tickets purchased.

We ask for everyone to remain calm and give us as organisers the opportunity of resolving this unprecedented situation, which has gripped all our communities across the world.

My sincere thanks to Scotland and Wales along with Marie at Golden Palm Resort, Skegness, also Adrian Battersby and the staff at 247TV, for their help and understanding of this serious situation.

Keep safe everyone.

Yours faithfully,
Tommy Thompson
Chairman England Darts Organisation
 

To all our members and supporters of the England Open,

Like all of us, nobody knows what the consequences are for the current ongoing situation, including Bunn Leisure.

We have spoken to them and presently they are open for business, and we are not cancelling or postponing the England Open at this time, however things are changing daily and should the situation or government instruction within the next number of days/weeks, make it impossible to hold the Open in early June, we are committed to holding the Open as soon as possible thereafter, any deposits or full payments already made, will be honoured by Bunn Leisure, as they do value you all.

As soon as we can give any further clarification we will do so immediately.
We would like to thank you for your patience at this time.
​​​​​​​
Tommy Thompson
England Darts Organisation

 

 

Unfortunately due to Governmental shut down of venues and with the safety of our players and guardians aswell as organisers at heart all England Youth Grand Prix Events are suspended until further notice.

White we cannot give a date on which we will resume events our current estimates would see a restart of regional events in July, with England Open not yet confirmed to take place or be postponed.

All Members will be informed when any decisions are made and updates will be posted on here.

Finally, with the amount of events looking to reschedule for later in the year we will be in discussions with our directors on how our events will look once normality resumes, this may mean cancellation of events or changes in the structure for the rest of the season....

Please keep safe and follow the governmental guidelines for the near future - if you have any questions I will do my best to answer them when I can via email at bkirkenglanddarts@gmail.com.

Take care for now!

Bradley Kirk
England Youth Executive Officer.

Sunday 15th March saw the culmination of the 2020 Festival with the stage finals all being held in the Grand Hall of the Villa Marina. All three of the ladies events finished seeing finals between Beau Greaves and Fallon Sherrock and despite some very impressive averages from both of them, it was Fallon who finished up victorious in all three finals.

In the Men's finals the titles were spread around as Scot Cameron Menzies beat Jason Heaaver in the Darts Corner Classic, Frenchman Thibault Tricole beat Neil Duff in the IOM Classic and Welshman Michael Warburton beat Martin Adams to win the Pokerstars IOM Open.

In a very good quality between the two youth boys, (who already held three England youth titles between them) saw Luke Littler beat Charlie Manby 5-3 to retain the title.

Earlier in the day the Ladies and Men's pairs competitions were played, with the winners being Casey Gallagher & Fallon Sherrock and  Ken Waters & Mark Fletcher, before the culmination of the 2020 Festival with the stage finals all being held in the Grand Hall of the Villa Marina.  To see the stream, just click on the logo below.

Saturday 14th March saw the Ladies and Men's Pokerstars IOM Open and the IOM Youth Singles being played, the titles are very prestigious titles as both the Ladies and Mens have been competed for every year since 1986 and some of the biggest names in world darts have been honoured to leave the island as their champion.

Both Ladies and Men's Opens were played down to the semi-final stage, which will be played on Sunday as part of the finals day after the Ladies and Men's Pairs competitions have been played off.

The Ladies semi-finals will be Beau Greaves v Lorraine Winstanley and Vicky Pruim v Fallon Sherrock, whilst the men's semi-finals are between Jim Williams v Martin Adams and Michael Warburton v Scott Williams.

The youth singles were also played today, the girls was completed and the Champion was Sophie McKinlay who beat Eleanor Cairns 3-0 in the final. The overall youth event was played down to the final which will see Luke Littler v Charlie Manby contest the final on stage tomorrow.

Selected matches from both the Pokerstars IOM Opens were streamed live on the England Darts YouTube channel, just click on the link below to see the matches.


After a good start on Thursday at the Villa Marina in Douglas, today (Friday 13th March) saw both the Ladies and Men's IOM Masters  singles events played down to their respective finals.

The ladies IOM Masters event has produced the same final as the previous days  as Fallon Sherrock and Beau Greaves reached their second final of the 2020 Festival.

The Masters event has WDF and England ranking points, which saw different seeds from the BDO ranked Classic event. In fact Beau was not seeded in today's Masters and she beat the number 1 seed Aileen de Graaf 4-1 in her semi-final. The other semi-final saw Fallon seeded 3 and she beat number 2 seed, Deta Hedman 4-2.

In the men's semi-finals, Scotland's Cameron Menzies almost made his second festival final but lost 2-4 to Thibault Tricole of France who is seeded number 2 in the WDF rankings. His opponent in the final will be Northern Ireland's Neil Duff who beat Joe Davis of Sussex 4-0.

By reaching the respective finals of today's events which were both WDF Silver ranked it means Beau, Fallon, Thibault and Neil have all qualified for the end of season WDF Masters event.
