I am thinking of changing the name of our darts team next year to Demolition Derbys.
I have some new signings (one of which didn’t turn up again nor let me know this time), and roped my neighbour in to play as well as you know.
Tonight we put two new holes in the chalkboard, almost speared the bubblegum machine so they moved it, put three holes in the floor and almost as many in whoever was chalking at the time. It wasn’t just my girls either as they had some novice ladies on the home team too.

I can honestly say I have not laughed so much for a long time. We got totally hammered, losing 11 points to 1, so are bottom of the league with only 3 points after 2 matches with a Bye next week.
But you know, it doesn’t matter. The girls had fun tonight, on both sides. The atmosphere was relaxed, friendly and chatty, my only criticism was the music was too loud, but that was a minor technicality.
The result didn’t actually reflect the standard of play, the opposition just got their doubles and we didn’t.
It was a good night and I’m proud of our team, especially our Woman of the Match (point).
