hmm why does this game have to separate males and females? look like a pretty leisure sport to me

Agree.  I didn't even realize that Women's darts was a thing.  surely both sexes can play in the same contest?

In the PDC World Championships at the end of 2018, 2 women qualified for the tournament both losing in the first round. Also, from memory, in the Darts World Cup a couple of years ago one of the Chinese team was a woman. If they are good enough in the PDC then that can play. The BDO is separated though as shown in this article.

Cool! She can broaden the appeal of darts. I usually play while drinking and score accordingly!

Played a lot of darts in my earlier days. Glad to see it here too at the pool halls/adult Game Centers. Only found one “smoky pub” with a dart board though. In Hokkaido.

On a side note, this is pretty bad writing/reporting by Alastair Himmer at the AFP. Doesn’t describe what the “BDO” is or introduce where the tournament is except for “a maigical week at Lakeside”. So, is that Lakeside Florida? Back to JRN 101 for you Alastair.
