England Darts announce cancellation of Golden Darts tournaments in early December

England Darts announced their intention recently to host new tournaments called 'Golden Darts' in early December at Bunn Leisure in Selsey; with WDF points being added to them but these have now been cancelled.

These tournaments came from England Darts; as a result of the COVID pandemic paying heed to their plans to host the England Open and England National Singles.

This offered new hope for not only them but for the WDF in terms of restarting their season; but Bunn Leisure sent out a statement which was released on England Darts' Facebook page.

"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."

Tommy Thompson, the chairman of the organisation said the following: "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."
