The JDC lends its support to recognise ladies day with the onset of the inaugural Womens World Series event this weekend. 

The JDC has a number of girls playing darts within its academy system and is supporting the event to boost the ambition of the current crop of young girls playing and hopefully to inspire others girls to start playing.

The JDC has the support of three female ambassadors, Laura Turner, Anastasia Dobromyslova and " queen of the palace" Fallon Sherrock who are assisting the JDC in promoting girls in the sport of darts and showing what can be achieved within the game. 

The celebration of the ladies game will continue this weekend and will be marked every year on October 17th for years to come. 

The JDC, JDC Virtual and its partners will be going pink this weekend with social media posts, logos and articles all featuring the colour pink to mark the celebration. 

 

From JDC to PDC, Justin Hewitt and Craig Galliano will have represented their nation at junior level and now senior level.

 

Both players will represent Gibraltar next month in Gratz for the PDC's World Cup of darts after a final qualifier in Gibraltar this week confirmed their places in the PDC's World Cup of Darts 2020.

 

 

With the final rounds on the rock including Dyson Parody and Dylan Duo, both Hewitt and Galliano would need to be at their very best for both young players to qualify.

Eventually making the final, Galliano needed to beat Hewitt to confirm his place in the team.

 

Both players have previously represented Gibraltar at JDC World events in 2018 staged in Bristol and 2019 in their home nation of Gibraltar. Hewitt, who just missed out on the final of the 2019 JDC World Darts Championship last year to Adam Gawlas in the semi finals, will now get his chance on a world stage to perform. 

 

Alex Nunez from the Gibraltar Darts Association commented,

 

"When Jeremy and I, revived youth darts in gibraltar 7 years ago we had always dreamt about having our very own graduates qualify for the PDC World Cup of Darts.
Both Craig and Justin have demonstrated that a structured Academy, hard work and dedication pays off.
The GDA is extremely proud of them both in becoming the youngest ever team to qualify for the PDC World Cup.
This will no doubt inspire young players around the world to never give up on their dreams".

The PDC World Cup of darts will be featured on Sky Sports from November 6th - 8th in Austria. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Junior Darts Corporation will be offering the opportunities and support to the children of South Africa through the newly created JDC South Africa. Headed up by the African Warrior Devon Petersen, JDC South Africa will be the spring board for Petersen’s academy roll out plans. 

 

Petersen, who is an ambassador for the JDC, has made huge progress behind the scenes in creating a structure for the creation of JDC South Africa to be launched, and to further his dream of an academy system opening in South Africa. Supported by fellow professional and JDC Chairman Steve Brown they have both enabled the project to get to this exciting point.

 

Early in 2020 ( pictured ) the African Warrior attended the JDC’s accreditation day to complete his own training in the way the JDC operate and how academies can be created with affiliation to the JDC. With a team in South Africa ready to get to work and with the current “on the oche” success of Devon himself, he has created a real buzz around darts in the country of South Africa. 

 

Devon said, 

 

I am very excited about this now. I have been working with Steve and Darren for a while on this and it has always been my dream to have a junior system of opportunity in South Africa. I know the value of having structure and support at junior level and now feel that I can pursue the Devon Petersen Darts Academies along with JDC South Africa and bring on more opportunities to the kids via this relationship”. 

 

Steve Brown Commented, 

 

“Fantastic news for the country of South Africa and darts as a whole. Devon has put some real effort in lately to see this through and we are delighted about this relationship going forward. I can’t wait to see young South African players getting the same opportunities as others around the world with the support of the JDC and the passionate drive Devon brings to this relationship”. 

 

JDC South Africa will also create the opportunity for young dart players to compete in all JDC competitions and will see a team South Africa at next years junior world team event. 

 

 

This week sees the official launch of JDC Germany under the stewardship of Hannover 96 darts academy director Andreas Rollwage. The relationship will provide Germany with a solid base on which to build the platform of junior darts across the whole of Germany with the support and guidance from the JDC and Andreas and his team.

Fanatastic news for children attending darts academies affiliated to the JDC as the corporation opens its academy network for the first time since March. 

Nigerian players on JDC Virtual received a boost from JDC Chairman Steve Brown who sent a donation of training equipment to support the players on JDC Virtual at the Delta State Darts Association training center.

The JDC has been one of the success stories during the modernisation of darts over the past decade or so. Steve Brown’s brainchild has grown into an entire system for the development and encouragment of junior darts. It has even been the inspiration behind MAD.

Amongst all the uncertainty around the world currently, the JDC is looking at the bigger picture and finds a huge amount of positives. JDC Virtual is one such thing to come out of the current situation.
