The ADC has been a success since its introduction at the start of the year, with eight Championship Tours having played around the country across the year as well as other competitions each weekend where ranking points are an offer to every player through Darts Atlas.

With the World Darts Open being cancelled at the end of the year unfortunately, ADC have taken the next step forward with ADC Oceania coming through making two spots available at the World Open to them whenever the tournament decides to reschedule for.

The Geelong Dart Club played host to the first weekend of action where a near nine darter was hit, with Jeremy Fagg, Rhys Matthewson and Mal Cuming those too have entered the winners circle having claimed glory in the three events in Australia.

ADC Oceania director Ian Dargan spoke to Winmau after a successful start and when asked about the importance of having us on side, he responded: “The support from Winmau was magnificent, the ADC by name is the Amateur Darts Circuit, the addition of the Winmau product and the support from Winmau is felt by the players, and it makes them feel like it’s a professional environment”

Ian also went on to explain that there is still more to come from grassroots darts in Australia with how well the first weekend went and hopes more will come forward to test themselves after what was a successful first outing.

“It really is an exciting time for Australia, this can now be the platform to push us higher and hopefully progress more and more players across to the PDC path and who knows, somewhere down the line we can find the next Australian World Champion”

Winmau’s very own Simon Whitlock and Damon Heta became the first pair to win the World Cup of Darts for the country after the Wizard came so close with former partner Paul Nicholson back in 2012, losing 3-2 to England represented by World Champions Phil Taylor and Adrian Lewis.

The win in Frankfurt can be seen as an inspiration for many future players after the Heat switched Perth in Western Australia to Ilkeston in Derby, giving the PDC circuit a crack which as of now has been a huge success with multiple wins on the Pro Tour and now the World Cup as well.

“We’ve been very fortunate with our overseas players within the PDC, obviously Simon and Damon winning the World Cup and Gordon Mathers performing very solid all year reaching the Semis Finals in Townsville for the World Series”

“The ADC Oceania platform is something new and exciting, and a whole host of opportunity for these guys and girls”

ADC Oceania will continue to showcase across the year and if you want to find out more head to their Facebook for more info, whilst the Amateur Darts Circuit in the UK will play host to its final two Championship Tours of the year this weekend in Bristol as the race for the Grand Finals in Reading reaches its conclusion.
