JDC UK TOUR 2 RESULTS

 

Jarred Cole was delighted on Saturday afternoon in Derby as he won the JDC’s second UK tour event of 2017 as the talented youngster defeated Tavis Dudeney 5-1 in a terrific performance from the youngster in what was a great tournament from the JDC at the Cueball Club in Derby. Cole played some superb darts on his way to clinching the UK Tour 2 title as he enjoyed wins against Jack Ratcliffe (3-0), Liam Earwicker (3-0), Luke Durham (3-1) and Brad Phillips 4-1 in the semi finals as he dropped just three legs all day. As well as scooping the £150 first prize, Cole has become a JDC All-star which means he will face Michael van Gerwen at a Modus Darts event later this year and he has been granted a place in the play-offs for the JDC's Junior World Darts Championship. He joins James Beeton who won UK Tour 1 in Dorchester.

The third event on the JDC tour is coming up on June 10th at Rileys sports bar in Worcester.

JDC NEWS FLASH

 

The Junior Darts Corporation is delighted to announce that the inaugural WDS Associates World Junior Darts Championship will be staged this December.

 

 
With a prize fund of £4,000, the World Junior Darts Championship will feature 32 players, with 16 UK-based players being joined by 16 qualifiers from around the world.

 

The tournament will be played down to the final on December 3rd. The final will be played on stage at Alexandra Palace during the 2018 PDC William Hill World Championship.

 

JDC chairman Steve Brown said: “For us, the introduction of the WDS Associates World Junior Darts Championship completes the set. We have the Modus UK Tour and the European Championship, and now the World Championship will further cement and enhance our reputation as an organisation.

 

“A World Championship is something we have wanted to do for the last two years or so, and we now feel we have arrived at a stage where we have the confidence in the people around the world – not just in the UK – to help provide the tournament with qualifiers of the highest standard.
 

 

“Last year, the final of the UK Tour was held at Alexandra Palace, and we will be delighted to see our first world champion crowned on the big stage there this year.”

 

The overall winner will receive £2,000, with the runner-up earning £1,000, the semi-finalists £300 each and the quarter-finalists £100 each.

 

The JDC is also delighted to announce an improved calendar and changes to the prize fund for 2017.

 

The Modus UK Tour will still consist of the original venues and dates for the six events around the UK, but the winners are now invited to attend every event.

 

The UK Tour will now provide 11 qualifiers (six event winners, plus the five highest ranked players from the tour order of merit not to have won an event) for the JDC World Championship, alongside five UK-based JDC academy players from the 2017 rolling academy order of merit.

 

Each tour event will carry a £300 prize fund, with the winner taking £150 and becoming a JDC All-star, the runner-up landing £100 and the semi-finalists £25 each.

 

The top three players from the 2017 Modus UK Tour will gain a scholarship and a free pass into all PDC Development Tour events in 2018.

 

The changes mean the overall prize fund for JDC events in 2017 has increased by more than 30 per cent and now stands at £13,300 across the Modus UK Tour, JDC European Championship and WDS Associates World Championship.

In a move that will help ensure the future of the sport, Winmau, the world’s leading darts brand, has announced a five-year sponsorship deal of the Junior Darts Corporation (JDC).

The company, which has supported the JDC since 2014, will provide financial support, equipment for JDC Darts Academies and assistance with marketing and publicity.



Formed in 2010 by PDC star Steve Brown, the JDC is aimed at boys and girls aged between eight and 18 years old and costs just £15 to join. Since then, the organisation has grown from its first JDC Academy in Brown’s home town of Bristol to a network of 12. Each academy is run by experienced CRB/DBS checked coaches, many with the involvement of current PDC stars, such as the Jamie Caven Darts Academy in Derby.

To encourage their enthusiasm for the sport, as well as their development, the academies use a unique scoring system that is endorsed by the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC) to accurately measure a child’s ability and enable players of mixed ages and abilities to play against each other. The players are also awarded different coloured shirts to grade their level of ability.

"The scoring system helps level the field for the kids,” says Steve Brown, who is also Chairman of the JDC. "It stops weaker players getting discouraged by continually losing to much better or older players, and means that better players have to play their best to win. The shirt system provides them with a sense of achievement and progress – a little like the coloured belt system in judo or karate,” he adds.

A fundamental element of the JDC’s philosophy is to replicate elements of the professional game. As a result, the organisation launched the JDC Tour in 2015 – a series of tournaments held across the country – backed by Winmau. Like their adult professional counterparts, the players compete for cash prizes and ranking points. The 2016 JDC Tour will culminate in a £1,000 first prize final which will be held on the main stage at Alexandra Palace during the William Hill PDC World Darts Championships in December.

This year also saw the inaugural JDC European Championship played over three days at Pontins Brean Sands in Somerset. The event, which included players from The Netherlands, Belgium and Spain, was won by Stoke-on-Trent’s 16 year-old Jim Moston who picked up the top prize of £2,000.

"The standard of play amongst JDC players has to be seen to be believed,” says Steve Brown. "We have young players competing alongside adults in leagues across the country, as well as at County and international level. Being an eight to 18 year-old today is tough. Darts not only provides a focus for their energies and enthusiasm but also, with the increasing amount of money in the professional game, a potential career opportunity as well.”

Winmau’s Sales and Marketing Director, Ian Flack, added: "I know it is a cliché, but the youngsters are the future of our sport, and supporting players of all ages and levels of ability is deep rooted in our company philosophy. The JDC, and everyone involved in it, work tirelessly and selflessly to encourage juniors to take up the sport and to play professionally and fairly. We’re proud to be associated with the JDC and to be able to contribute to its continued success.”
