National Darts trail at Walvis Bay

A total of sixty darts players from six of the fourteen regions in the country turned up for the National Darts trail that is under way at the Narraville Primary School Hall in Walvis Bay. The trails are hosted by the Namibian Darts Federation to select the best players to represent Namibia at the Zone Six Championships in Botswana at the end of August 2018.

Mr Paul Fisher welcomed all the players and the management of the fede-ration to the harbour town of Namibia and said in the opening remark that “if the eye sees that the hand precisely does what the brain thinks then we can be all winners”.
The teams that will be selected are men’s and women’s veterans with two players in each team and their manager; the senior men’s team with six players and one manager; a senior women’s team with four players and one manager; the youth team with two men and two women players each.
The Secretary General of the Federation Mr Naobeb is not happy with the fact that there are no youth and junior players at the trials and then mentioned that the Federation will have the trails for the youth and juniors next year. The Chairman of the Khomas Region said that the Federation is not doing enough for the youth dart players in the country. He also felt that darts should be one of the sports code at the NSSU.
The President of the Federation Mr Ralph Ludwig said that national players will not contribute any money for the championships in Botswana as they (the players) need to concentrate on the games. We as the management do not want the National players to stress about the finances for the championships in Botswana. He further said that dart players need to step up and make the deference, in showing the Namibian nation and the world that you can play darts without drinking any alcohol during the games. Only the best and disciplined players will be selected. Mr Ludwig also said that after the tournament the Federation will donate four dart boards to Narraville Primary school.
Tomorrow will be an open dart tournament and everyone is welcome to enter. The registration fee will be N$100. If you are interested to play against the best in the country you can call Mr Frans Husfieldt at 0811483371. The open tournament will start at 08:00 and the games at 09:00.
