A LOOK BACK TO THE 2014 INTERNATIONAL DARTS ARENA
January 08, 2015
Share on Facebook


Year 2014 saw the significant reduction in the cash prizes won by Pinoy darters in international dart tournaments.  Historically in 2013, our darters won five (5) of the eight (8) stages of Dartslive, and Lourence Ilagan won the Grand Finals championship over compatriot Christian Perez.  The cash prize won by all Pinoy players from Dartslive alone totaled over P10M.  Aside from Dartslive, Phoenix Darts also offered big prizes taken advantage by the lot of Pinoy darters. more

Christian Perez wins the Chris Sports Darter of the Year as Prussian Arceño fails to win enough points to overhaul the slim 31 points lead of Christian Perez. Going to the final 2014 NDFP ranking tournament,   the 1M Congressman Manny Pacquiao Philippine Darts Open, Prussian Arceño only needed 32 ranking points, with the absence of Christian Perez, to win the Darter of the Year Award.  Christian Perez skipped the 1M Manny Pacquiao Tournament as he left for London for the World Darts Championship on the day the Open Singles was played. more

CAGAYAN DE ORO – The Breeding Ground of Hunter Darters
Share on Facebook


No less than The Titan said it.  On the last and final day of TSADarts Episode III, Ian Perez did not play in the 3-Man Classified Draw.  He rested the whole morning.  He wanted to come prepared in the afternoon for the tough games in the Singles event.  So did other national darters like Boie Parfan, and Prussian Arceño.  You know why?  Because this is Cagayan De Oro.  This is the place where the hunters (localspeak for accurate and deadly darters) give the so-called glamour darters of Manila headaches and heartaches on the boards.  Almost always. more

The 2014 Robson Summer Dartfest did not produce the much hope for a head to head showdown between two of the finest darters in the land today - The Gunner vs The Titan.  Nonetheless, the 3-day event brought exciting and closely fought matches.  After the smoke has cleared, Lou won 2 events – Classified Doubles and the Open Singles, while Ian bagged the first Federation Cup crown.  This left the Pinoy darting nation hanging dry once again and aching to see more of these two great gladiators battle mano-a-mano with each other in the tournaments ahead. more

The growth of Philippine darts continues to explode as never seen before. From the depths of extinction in 2001, darts has slowly risen by bits and pieces, till 2007, where the phenomenal growth started to take off culminating in what we are seeing today.

We are reaping today the fruits of darts transformation in outlook, values, beliefs and principle aided by the new realigned entities in support of these changes. We cannot go back and reassert the failed system of the past lest history repeat itself. New realities have emerged and the darting community needs to adapt and co-evolve with these changing realities. more
