"Always said I would stop when the enjoyment has gone from playing": Deta Hedman casts doubt on darting future

Darting legend, Deta Hedman has cast doubt on her future in the sport of darts admitting that she isn't currently enjoying the game as she took to social media to open up about her current thinking.

The 64-year-old competed in the PDC Women's Series tournament in Wigan last weekend. In the final tournament of the weekend, Hedman recorded her best result by reaching the quarter-finals. She also missed two match darts in her match against eventual winner Mikuru Suzuki to advance to the semifinals.

"Not the best weekend at PDC (Women's Series), missed 2 darts in event 8 to get into semis, always said I would stop playing when the enjoyment has gone from playing, think the present issues with the ladies game that time is getting closer," said Hedman.

By her reference to "the current problems within women's darts," Hedman is likely referring to the ongoing storm which has surrounded the inclusion of transgender players in women's darts tournaments which she has advocated against previously. Noa-Lynn van Leuven has made headlines in recent months for her success, but also had a negative reaction come with this.
