SIMONE DE LACY writes …….The annual Spanish National Federation of Darts tournament was held in Gandia again this year (27 April-1st May) and two teams of hopefuls (Men’s and Ladies) competed for the right to enter having played in the preliminary rankings games during the season to qualify for a place on the team.

They faced around 600 people from all over Spain in the competitions individual, pairs and team matches that stretched over 4 days.  It was one hell of a weekend but well worth it!
