PDC supports World Matchplay for darts players with disability

The PDC will support the World Disability Darts Association (WDDA) in organising its own World Matchplay for darts players with a disability.

The WDDA organises a tournament for three different categories: classic, compris and ladies. The finals of these categories will be played from July 18-20 on the stage in the Winter Gardens during the regular World Matchplay.

"We're delighted to welcome the WDDA to stage their World Matchplay finals at the Winter Gardens this July," said PDC Chief Executive Matt Porter.

"Their events have become increasingly competitive and popular in recent years, and being able to play on a professional stage at our Betfred World Matchplay will be a huge boost for their players. We look forward to welcoming their finalists to Blackpool in July to experience the thrill of playing on a PDC stage in front of the great Winter Gardens crowd."

The nine days of action in Blackpool in July will also feature the inaugural Women's World Matchplay, as eight female stars do battle on Sunday July 24 for the new title.
