DARTS TALK ON BBC SHEFFIELD
By John Lowe, Dec 14 2014 09:27AM
I will be in the BBC Sheffield Radio station tomorrow morning to discuss the sport of darts and where it is today, the interview has been arranged to promote tomorrow nights documentary on BBC4 Beer and Bullseyes showing at 9am, if you are in the Sheffield area and tune in you can send any questions you have to the station, Sheffield is very prominent in so much it is where I started playing challenge money matches, the Arundel Club at Manor Top was our venue way back in the early 70's 400 people would cram into the main room on a Saturday afternoon to watch the likes of Brian Langworth, Tony Littlewood, alan Evans, Leighton Rees and myself play for large sums of money, it would not be unusual for over £1000 to change hands in bets and the price of a entry ticket 40p in old money, that was the only way to play serious darts and find out the top players, the BDO had not been formed, there wasn't any Inter-County or Super Leagues, just the NDAGB National Darts Association of Great Britain, they ran the News of the World championship the biggest darts tournament in the World and the Nodor Fours and the National NDAGB Singles, I am proud to say I have won all of those events now long superseeded by todays TV tournaments, but without those early events in years gone by darts would not be where it is right now, to find out more watch Beer and Bullseyes 9pm Tomorrow night.
