                               SDA Open 2022


After consultation with the WDF the 2022 Darts Corner Scottish Open will now take place at the Normandy Cosmopolitan Hotel, Inchinnan Road, Renfrew from Friday 22nd April to Sunday 24th April 2022. 
This is a WDF Gold event for both men and ladies. This event is open to all players who are eligible to play in the World Masters and the World Professional Championships and carries a place at Lakeside for both champions. The Scottish Darts Association are inviting players to enter the annual Scottish darts-fest that is the Scottish Open.  This is one of the hardest open tournaments to win as illustrated by the history of the event showing only two players that have ever won the men’s title twice, Robbie Green, in 2011 and 2014 and Wesley Harms who won in 2013 and 2019. 

Will there be another Scottish winner to follow in the footsteps of Peter Johnstone (1998), Mike Veitch (2004), Gary Anderson (2007) and Cameron Menzies (2017)? 

The Scottish Open was first contested in 1983, held on the same weekend as the World Cup in Edinburgh and was won by 23 year old Australian star Russell Stewart who defeated his fellow Australian Terry O’Dea in the final.  The ladies title went to Pat Connaughton from England who defeated Welsh ladies team captain Sandra Lee in the final. 

The tournament was then moth-balled for twelve years and revived in 1995 when England’s Chris Mason took the title along with ladies singles champion Deta Hedman, who currently leads the way in the Ladies Open with five titles. Others to watch out for include Anastasia Dobromyslova with four wins and Lorraine Winstanley with three titles.  Ann Kirk has been Scotland’s sole victor in the Ladies event winning twice in1996 and 1999. Fallon Sherrock has been in five out of the last six ladies finals and finally took her maiden SDA Open title in 2017. 

This year’s event will kick off on the Friday night with the traditional ice-breaker tournament, the Mixed Triples, followed by two sessions of Singles play on the Saturday and finishing on the Sunday with the Open Doubles competitions. The Mens winner will take away £3000 while the Ladies champion wins £1500 and of course valuable ranking points can be accrued to take into the Ranking Tables. The current champions are Jim Williams from Wales and England’s Beau Greaves.  Winning duo in the mens pairs were Scottish duo Cameron Menzies & Ryan Hogarth, the first time an all-Scottish pair had won the title while the ladies champions were Deta Hedman and Beau Greaves, who successfully defended their 2019 title, also giving Deta three in a row.

The Friday night triples competition was won by the Cleveland trio of Carla Boyes, Cameron Anderson and Simon McKenner, calling themselves Stampers Crew. Online entries will be accepted by the end of February on the SDA website and full entry details and accommodation offers will be available, please check in regularly. For special accommodation rates please phone the Normandy Hotel and remember to mention it’s for the darts weekend.
