Ladies dart to victory at Roma competition
DARTS: There’s nothing like a bit of healthy competition between friends.
The Ladies Closed Championship kicked off this weekend at the Roma Darts Association with the group of ladies all vying for the top spots.
The competition took place over both Saturday and Sunday with players competing in four different games.
Member of the Darts Association Selina Tucker said all competitors played extremely well and the competition was a huge success.
“I would like to shout a big thank you to all the ladies that had played the ladies closed championship on the weekend,” Tucker said.
“I had seen so many high scores thrown which was just absolutely wonderful, well done to you all.
“And a big congratulations to the winners and runners-up.”
Selina took out a number of the wins herself, coming first in the singles and ladies pot luck and was a runner-up in the ladies doubles with her daughter Sharmaine Tucker.
Cherie Jeffery and Elaine Taylor were the winners of the ladies doubles, Ann Hartley came in first place with Selina in the ladies pot luck and Ann Johnstone and Elaine Taylor scored first in the family doubles.
This competition was particularly special as both the eldest and youngest entrants were playing off against each other.
Eldest player 90-year-old Gwen McEwan and youngest player, 18-year-old Sharmaine Tucker prove that darts is for everyone, no matter what your age.
“I would just like to say a big thank you to everyone and it was a great day,” Selina said.
