Adding to the JDC'S portfolio , is the Emerald Darts Academy.
Situated in the town of Tullow, Co Carlow the Emerald Darts Academy is 60 minutes from Dublin and offers the opportunity for Irish juniors to participate in an ever popular growth of Darts Academies in the UK.
Darren Barson the JDC'S Director of Operations said,
" this is truly a great addition for our growing list of academies nationwide. Darts is offering great oportunities for Junior players these days and its great to have the Irish on board. The JDC has great representation in England and Wales and currently we are exploring Scotland and main land Europe too".
DAN PERRY took victory in the opening event of the 2016 Junior Darts Corporation season at the George Albert Hotel in Dorchester.
Perry followed up his success in winning a JDC event in 2015 by claiming the first of this year's six national JDC events for players aged 10-17.
Perry's success also gives him a head start in the JDC's "Pathway To The Palace", with the season-ending final to be held on stage at the William Hill World Darts Championship.
"It was a fantastic tour event and with an increase in entrants on 2015, I am pleased to see this event well attended," said JDC Chairman Steve Brown.
"This particular event is highly anticipated as it's our first event of the year which provides us with our first finalist for December."
