Two new associations have joined the ranks of the World darts Federation in recent times. The WDF has been the governing body of International darts for many years and has plans to rebuild much of the circuit left bereft by the demise of the BDO. New members showing confidence can be no bad thing.
The WDF is very pleased to announce that World ParaDarts are set to join the WDF as Associated Members:
WDF President Bill Hatter stated how pleasing it was to welcome World ParaDarts into the WDF. “Over the last few years I have eagerly followed the rise in interest and participation in disabled darts and with the WDF being about giving everyone across the world the chance to play darts, it’s very pleasing to welcome Sarah and the team from World ParaDarts into the WDF as Associated Members.”
Sarah Smale, Chairperson of World ParaDarts was quick to point out the importance of WDF recognition. “World ParaDarts encourages the promotion of the sport of darts and disability darts and joining the WDF as Associated Members will only help as we look to gain international recognition for darts as a major sport as well as International Paralympic Committee recognition”
Just like a number 19 bus a second association was swift to follow the Paradarts lead:
The WDF is very pleased to announce that the Guernsey Darts Association is set to become the 73rd WDF Member Country.
WDF President Bill Hatter was quick to point out how much he was looking forward to welcoming Guernsey into the WDF family. “I was more than impressed with the way in which the Guernsey Darts Federation constructed their application to become WDF members. It was very professionally put together and they ticked every box when it came to showing how well the association is being run. We look forward to working with Caroline and her team in the coming years.”
Caroline La Touche is President of the Guernsey Darts Association and had this to say about joining the WDF: “Guernsey Darts have made big strides in the last few years and as a board we felt it was time to take the next step and join the WDF. We’re now working towards hosting our first WDF ranked tournament, hopefully in 2021 and we’ve heard great things about the World and Europe Cup competitions so are really looking forward to being a part of such prestigious events and giving players from our small island the chance to play against the best in the world.”
