Olly Croft, Hon. General Secretary BDO, British Darts Organisation
We welcome all competitors and visitors and particularly Bermuda making their debut this year.
Two players over this week-end are going to meet their lifetimes ambition by winning the 'Unicorn World darts Championship' and become famous overnight, so good darting to all involved.
The game of darts is fast becoming a major sport and at this World Championship level the pressures on the dart players are tremendous. However, whatever the pressures the traditional sportsmanship between the players goes on cutting across international boundaries so that this great sport is doing its bit to bring the world together in these difficult times.
We must thank Unicorn for promoting this great Darts Championship and involving the British Darts Organisation for the second time.
Unicorn's Directors, Stanley and Michael Lowy are just great people to work alongside and the unique way in which they involve themselves and their high standards make it a pleasure to be associated with them.
