On Saturday the JDC 's Foundation Tour would start proceedings with two open events for young players designed to allow youngsters to experience competition and aim for the 4 tour cards available for the Advanced Tour in 2021. The spoils were taken by dutch ace PIM van Bijnen and JDC Virtual Junior World Champion Cayden Smith OF England.
Both players competed in both finals on the day and shared a win between them.
Smith in the first event sealed his win with a 5-3 score line and a 71.7 ave and van Bijnen with a similar 5-3 win and an 80.8 ave in the second final.
Sunday would see the start of the Advanced Tour with 32 of the best junior players battling it out for an impressive £10,000 prize fund and what a start to this event.
Former multiple tour winner Leighton Bennett ran out the winner in event one with an impressive display throughout the day dropping only 3 legs before the final. The final would be against JDC Super 16 finalist Luke Littler and was arguably the best match of the weekend if not in JDC tour history. Both players averaged over 92 with Bennett edging out littler 6-4 with a 96.1 ave in just over 14 minutes of play.
The second event would see Welshman Connor Hopkins win his first JDC event beating JDC tour regular and academy student Englands Henry Coates. The semi final was the highlight of the second event with Hopkins edging out Leighton Bennett in a deciding leg 5-4 after Bennett averaged 108 during the first 7 legs of the match. Hopkins dispatched Coates 6-1 in the final with supreme confidence.
The next JDC Tour weekend will be on July 3&4.

The DPNZ Harrows Junior Darts Team to represent New Zealand has been formed for the JDC's World Darts Championship 2019.

The JDC in 2020 was unable to run the very successful Super16 tournament due to the pandemic that saw Keane Barry scoop the title in Milton Keynes last February.

 

This years event wll show case the girls game in an attempt to boost participation of young female players at junior level. 16 regions around the UK will hold a Boys and Girls event over the same time frame in 2021 to create 16 boys and 16 girls to attend a finals event later in 2021. 

 

The eventual winners of each event 1x boy & 1 x girl will meet on the Masters stage in Milton Keynes in a highly anticipated showcase final. The PDC have confirmed they are excited to have this event played out during the 2022 masters event. A huge experience for two lucky players begins locally and supported by the MAD Super Regional Directors to put the qualifying events on.
