A successful open darts competition was held at the 49 Social Club in Weston.

The eighth annual open darts competition was held at the 49 Social Club in Weston.

This year saw entries from as far away as Maidstone, Swindon, Poole and Cornwall, along with a number of players from Weston and the surrounding area.

The competition was keenly contested all day with 64 people entering the main competition.

The semi-finals saw two close games over a best of seven legs, Ryan Palmer beat PDC regular Dennis Smith 4-2, and in the other semi, Adam McNally from Weston beat Carl Evans 4-1.

The final played over the best of nine legs saw Adam McNally take the £400 prize money and trophy, beating Palmer from Bristol 5-2 in a high scoring final

The ladies’ competition had high scoring matches all the way through the competition. Two close semi-finals saw Christine Blackmore beat Ang Betts, with Hazel Stanmore-Richards beating Kelly Marshall in the other semi.

An evenly contested final saw Blackmore from Bridgwater beat Stanmore-Richards to claim the title.

In the plate competition, Ricky Harding from Weston beat Chris Skeates from Maidstone 3-2 in a tight final.

The 49 Social Club would like to thank everyone who entered and also came along to support the event, Dave Willis from Heineken for kindly sponsoring the competition, Mark Newman and Alan Hembrow for running the event on the day and Mike Harding and Terry Hayes for ensuring the room was set up for a day’s top quality darts.
