This year’s landmark 42nd Winmau World Masters in Association with Hull City Council and EY Events will be broadcast by British Eurosport across the UK next month.

Hull City Hall will again play host to the BDO Winmau World Masters for the 6th consecutive year between Friday 9 and Sunday 11 October. This year the play-offs will also be returning to Hull City Hall.

Councillor Terry Geraghty, Chair of Hull Culture and Leisure Limited, which is operated on behalf of Hull City Council, said:

"We are delighted to welcome the 2015 Winmau World Masters to Hull City Hall, which brings yet another exciting addition to Hull's sporting and events calendar.

"The Winmau World Masters is a world-class event which attracts thousands of darts players and fans from all over the world.

"Having the competition televised on British Eurosport is a fantastic opportunity to introduce people from all over the world to our wonderful city.

"We hope darts fans new and old will enjoy the event in Hull."

The Winmau World Masters field has never looked stronger with defending champion Martin Phillips and current world number one Glen Durrant leading the race for the Masters crown. Phillips faces some tough competition from the likes of the current World Champion Scott Mitchell, Martin Adams, Jamie Hughes, Geert De Vos, Darryl Fitton, Pip Blackwell, Scott Waites, Gary Robson, Jim Williams, Madars Razmar, Ross Montgomery and Mark McGeeney who are hot on his heels to claim this prestigious title and the £25,000 champions purse.

With the Dutch contingent of Wesley Harms, and Jeffrey de Graff you can be sure they’ll bring a strong group of passionate fans to Hull from October 9thto 11th.

The top 16 seeds listed above all lie in wait for the qualifying talent coming through from the floor in the last 32 stage, so you can be sure it’s going to be a truly open major darts event.

The world’s best ladies compete on the same weekend as Russia’s Anastasia Dobromyslova looks to defend the title she won last year after beating Fallon Sherrock 4-1 in the final. Fallon was the 2013 Girls World Youth Champion and has come a long way as she is now the BDO ranked number 2 player after winning numerous singles titles this year. Lisa Ashton the reigning World Champion and World Trophy Champion will be doing her best to try and capture the Winmau World Masters Title to make her hat trick of World Titles in 2015.

Deta Hedman the ladies number 1 seed and previous Winmau Champion along with Aileen De Graaf, Lorraine Winstanley, Zoe Jones and Rachel brooks make up the top 8 Ladies seeds who will all have other ideas.

There is a great crop of Youth talent on display for both the Boys and Girls with the final field yet to be decided, and the Winmau World Masters gives them the opportunity to showcase their skills on the big stage.

Last year saw the First WDDA World Championship which gives our disabled players the chance to compete on the World Stage. Ricky Chilton from Cornwall who beat Phil Lees from Manchester to lift the first title in this category, both players will again be battling it out and hoping that one of them will lift the title. They are joined by fellow British players Tony Pass, Paul Gelder, Michelle Gabica and Darren Agar along with the talented duo of Vince D'Hond and Jurgen Vercammen from Belgium. Winmau, the BDO and the WDDA are also pleased to announce a prize fund for the WDDA players for this year’s event.

"This year is very special for our company and this amazing tournament. It’s incredible to think that this is the 42nd Winmau World Masters and also the 42nd year of our partnership with the BDO.

"We are delighted that British Eurosport will be providing HD coverage (produced by 247.tv) across the UK. With one of the strongest and most in-form line ups the BDO has ever had, the coverage from Hull City Hall will be as gripping as ever.

"We have absolutely superb coverage all weekend and we’ll be keeping the fans up-to-date across Winmau’s and the BDO’s Twitter and Facebook accounts so no part of the action will be missed!”

DETA HEDMAN AND MARK McGEENEY ARE 2015 BRITISH OPEN CHAMPIONS

 

The 41st British Open once again entertained all darts fans with a spectacular show of darting talent by Live streaming throughout the day as well as all semi-finals and finals.

 

Their was a marvellous Semi final line up in both the ladies and Men’s competitions.

 

The first ladies semi-final was a ‘War of the Roses’ between Lancashire’s Lisa Ashton and Yorkshire’s Lorraine Winstanley. Although both ladies were pretty evenly matched Lisa booked her place in the final when she hit a 142 outshot in the fifth leg to win the match 4-1. The second semi final was between Fallon Sherrock and Deta Hedman which Deta won convincingly after hitting a 174 to set up a 36 outshot in the 5th leg giving her a 4-1 victory with a 26.54 average.

 

The first of the men’s semi finals was between Gary Robson and Mark McGeeney. It was Mark who dominated this match winning through to the final 5 -1 against an under-par Robbo. The second semi-final was an all Yorkshire affair between ‘Scotty 2 hotty’ Waites and Brian ‘Doggy’ Dawson. Scott initially raced into a 3 – 0 lead then Brian showed true Yorkshire grit as he took 3 legs but Scott dug in and sealed his place in the final with a 5-3 victor and both players having 30+ averages.

 

The Ladies final was a high scoring match by both ladies but it was dominated by Deta who had a 29.35 average and won 5-1. Lisa’s average was 27.60.

The Men’s final was another ‘Roses’ battle when Yorkshires Scott Waites took to the stage against Lancashire’s Mark McGeeney. Although both players were evenly matched it was Mark who was most consistant at both scoring and hitting doubles eventually winning 6-3 to become the 2015 British Open Champion.

 

Well done to both Champions.
