New player Natasha was drawn in the first match of the night. Although she hasn't played a lot of darts before, she didn't let this put her off and it was a brave effort against the more experienced Darren. She didn't manage to win a leg in this first match but she did score well enough to get down to a finish each time, and her scoring became more steady as the match progressed.
Play overall was steady, with that treble-20 looking elusive at times, not to mention a fair share of double-trouble meaning that nobody checked out more than a single dart total all night. There were a handful of ton plus scores with the honours for Highest Score going to Andy's 140 which pipped Tom's 127 and Darren's 125. Andy also won the Highest Checkout with 36 - a double-18. Finally a special mention for Ram's bad luck which saw two bounce-outs denying him treble-20 and 19, with the only dart to stick landing in the 1!
Thanks to everybody for coming along and joining in and I'll see you again next Monday.
