Inaugural BDDA events in Plymouth prove very popular

THE city’s Tamar View Community Centre hosted the British Disability Darts Association (BDDA) for the first time at the weekend when players came from the length and breadth of the country to play in the BDDA Plymouth Classic and Plymouth Open.

Paul Hampton proved a worthy winner with Michael Callaghan as runner-up and Matt Doe and Ricky Chilton as the losing semi-finalists.

Halford wins second title with accomplished showing

GLENN Halford added to his singles title that he won at the end of the Plymouth City Super League season when he defeated a quality field at the home of the league sponsor Maritime Social Club, when it hosted the Players Championship finals. But Halford was up against it as early as his first match when he trailed Neil Holder 2-0 before clawing back the deficiency and taking the next three on the bounce to be the first player into the quarter-finals.
