New Champion Crowned At The World Disabled Darts Association Tournament In The Isle Of Man

Paul Gelder became the winner of the second World Disabled Darts Association tournament which took place in the Isle of Man.

The final was a Yorkshire v Lancashire battle, contested between Wakefield’s Paul Gelder and Accrington’s Fred Carter.

Gelder overcame early nerves to rise victorious, taking out double nine to win the Disabled competition and earning a prize of £350.

Last years winner, Ricky Chilton, lost in the first round along with Darren Kennish, A.McEwan and Martin Herbert.

Manchester’s Phil Lees, who managed to reach the final of the inaugural WDDA tournament last October, bowed out in the semi-finals along with Yorkshire’s Tony Pass.

BDO ranking events were running alongside the WDDA tournament in the Isle of Man, allowing those competing in the disability tournament to mix with the likes of Martin Adams, Tony O’shea and Ted Hankey.
