Beau Greaves is known as one of the finest talents in darts and has been touted from a young age as a potential future World Champion.

Greaves herself competed in the recent BDO World Championship and at Q-School as she aims to continue to make a name for herself in a side of the sport starting to gain traction due to Fallon Sherrock and Lisa Ashton.

Speaking recently, ‘Beau N Arrow’ spoke about being inspired by the duo and what needs to be done to bring women’s darts to the top.

“I never thought I’d get to where I am. When I won my first tournament I was, ‘well I’ve won one now’ so it was a case of trying to get some more under my belt. I don’t know how I’m doing it but I’ve still got more to come, so I’m looking forward to that.” said Greaves to Sky Sports.

“With Fallon playing in the men’s world championship, that’s done probably something for ladies darts. It’s not as big as men’s, but hopefully it can be,” she added.

“Everyone knew how good Fallon was anyway, but she did great and I’m really happy for her. Like I said, that can only be good for all the other ladies playing darts.

“There are people who think women are not as good as men, but I just think we need consistency, I think that’s probably part of it. There’s no reason why we can’t compete.

“Of course (I want to be like Lisa and Fallon). I’m only young, but I do want to be on the big stage, I do want to do well and show people what I can do.

“I’ve had a few messages from girls who have started playing because of me.”
