League Table & Fixtures - 25th July

Some good matches last night. Cracking start by Ram who scored a 132 with his first 3 darts of the night and went on to checkout in 10 darts. That high score stood until the last match when Andy beat it, first with 133 and then with a 134 despite not winning a leg. I hit the highest checkout again - 3 weeks running now so my doubles have definitely improved!

Sadly Tel has had to drop out of the league because of other commitments. He had only played 2 matches which have been voided (so Anne and I both lose a win and 2 points). Crouch and Graham have a bit of catching up to do if we're not going to have a big fixture pile-up at the end of the season.

Here are the latest standings and the revised fixture list:

Latest League Table & Match Schedule

Finally got around to updating these after the round of matches last Monday:
In short, Dazza and Ram are joint leaders. Graham and Tel have started slowly and are yet to win a match. Plenty of time left for everything to change.

There are a number of knockouts coming up: these are open to everybody. Just turn up by 8pm on the night with your £2 entrance fee and I'll enter you into the draw. The dates are:
  • Monday 15th  August
  • Monday 29th August (Bank Holiday)
  • Monday 26th September
  • Monday 31st October (Halloween)
There will also be another big Christmas Knockout in the week before Christmas. Look out for details nearer the time.

Results 11 July 2011

A very enjoyable night of darts this week. Bonus: everybody turned up for the first time ;-)

Graham drew with Craig after a slightly shaky start by both players. Crouch got whitewashed by Andy: Andy's looking quite consistent this season. Anne hit some good scores but couldn't find her doubles and lost to Daz who's looking like the one to beat. I beat Tel in a steady match hitting a 56 checkout with 3 darts (8, 16, double-16) — joint highest on the night. Ram beat Graham in another steady match, and then beat Craig with some great totals in the last match of the night: 174 which was the highest of the night with another 3 ton+ scores. Ram also matched my 56 checkout.

So Ram and I shared the prize for highest checkout with Ram winning the highest score. Well done everybody and I'll see you next week.

Hi! My name's Ben and I currently organise a fun darts league at the Royal Standard pub on Frimley Road, Frimley, Surrey.

The league all started a couple of years ago when a bunch of guys decided that it would liven up Monday nights if they had a weekly darts competition. The format was based on the PDC Premier League and it was organised by a guy called Stuart. I played in it and finished up in the top 4 to get a trophy and cash prize.

Unfortunately due to personal circumstances Stuart was unable to organise the next competition so I volunteered and have been organising it since then.

The format is based on a round-robin with each person playing everyone else twice. We play matches over four legs of 301 which allows matches to result in a draw. Two points are awarded for a win and one for a draw and the players are ranked in order of points. The top few at the end of the "season" have a playoff knockout to win trophies and cash prizes.

As well as the league I also organise regular one-off knockout competitions. These might involve variations such as double-in, 501 instead of 301 or even pairs. I will post details of upcoming knockouts here: basically they are open to anybody as long as they can pay the entry fee (normally £2). The next one coming up will be on 15th August 2011 from 8pm.
