DARTS shooters will need a steady hand and a sharp eye when the Warrnambool Darts Association season enters finals tonight.
Minor premier City Memorial and second-ranked Vic Two will vie for direct passage into the division one grand final in the showcase match at Warrnambool’s Wannon Rooms.
Third-ranked Junction Jets and fourth-ranked Vikings clash in the other semi-final, with each aiming to keep their title hopes alive.
Commercial Hotel Koroit and Wheatsheaf Warriors clash in a division two semi-final, with the loser to play the winner of the Breakers One-Mad Max match.
Breakers Two and City Memorial Wild Things can book a grand final spot in the sole division three semi-final. The loser will take on Vic One in the preliminary final the following week.
Warrnambool Darts Association president Leigh Giblin said he hoped darts fans would support the finals series.
He said the association had retained steady numbers in the past few years and the sport was starting to build momentum in Australia.
“At the moment it’s huge overseas and it’s starting to pick up in popularity in Australia again, probably through being on television,” he said.
Teams will play six games of singles, three games of doubles and six games of reverse singles, with the first to eight games clinching the semi-final.
