Other sports may have their Super Sundays but we have Tungsten Tuesday next, May 28, in Paddy’s Bar as the final of the Carrick 400 Darts Tournament is held.
We had 287 entries from seven different counties, making the competition a fantastic success with the remaining eight players competing for a prize fund of €3000, with a first prize of €1200 and Leitrim Crystal trophy.
Spare a thought for Mayo’s Pat Bradley who reached three finals and two semis and failed to qualify, that after a four & a half hour round trip each night.
It promises to be a great final’s night with practice from 8.30, open draw by the players at 9pm, play starts 9.30. Quarter Finals will be played on two boards with the losers receiving €150 each. The semi-finals will be played on one board, with the losers receiving €300 each. In the final, the winner will receive €1,200 and the runner-up €600 & the winner will receive €1200.
Thanks to Paddy’s bar for their sponsorship of €500, €200 to the prize fund, €200 to Leitrim Darts for use of stands and the winner’s trophy.
On the night, the newly formed men’s board will hold their pick a double fundraiser on the night.
All we want now is your presence for what should be a terrific night of tungsten throwing, even if you only have a passing interest in darts please come along as this promises to be a great night’s entertainment, all part of the Carrick 400 Birthday Celebrations.
