The World Darts Federation is pleased to announce the details of two Executive appointments, one to fill the vacant position of the WDF President, and the other is the creation of a new Executive position being the WDF Tournament Director.

hatterWDF President – Mr Bill Hatter (Canada)

Bill Hatter has been actively involved in dart administration since 1986. He began coaching youth darts in his local community and has continuously expanded his volunteer efforts to serve on his provincial board in many different capacities including serving as the Darts Alberta President since 2003. With the vast experience gained in dealing with government bureaucracy, gaining provincial sport recognition and securing provincial funding, Bill continued to expand his volunteer efforts on the national level by serving as the President of the National Darts
Federation of Canada since 2007 with the goal of getting darts recognized by Sport Canada.

Bill was an integral member of the project team responsible for creating the National Dart Coaching Program–a thriving initiative that has trained over 75 dart coaches across Canada. Bill’s persistence and perseverance will undoubtedly lead to cutting through the red tape necessary to achieving sport recognition in Canada.

Bill’s volunteer efforts have definitely not gone unrecognized. He is a life member of the National Darts Federation of Canada and a recipient of the 2009 Alberta Sport Recreation Parks and Wildlife Foundation Volunteer of the Year Award.

With his vast experience in darts administration gained throughout the years, Bill looks forward to serving as the President of the World Darts Federation.

Roy has been active in darts administration for over 30 years. Starting as a County Secretary he served as National Team Manager and on the Norwegian Executive before becoming Norwegian President, a position he held for 6 years. He later served on the WDF European Council during which time he served as President for two years.

Roy decided not to seek re-election this year and intended to retire after 10 years on the Executive including the last 6 years as WDF President. However, he has accepted an appointment as Tournament Director maintaining his involvement with overseeing the setting up and management of WDF Cups and other major tournaments that may be established in the future.

Winmau TV and Kanal Sport to Broadcast DDU 1st Division matches!

Winmau TV and leading Danish broadcaster Kanal Sport will be broadcasting 15 transmissions from the best Danish division from late August 2013 to mid-spring 2014.

The Danish 1st Division consists of 12 teams geographically spread all over the country – every team has 4 players and they all play each other, so that a match consists of 16 singles matches of 501 best of five legs (i.e. first to three legs).

The transmissions last 2½ hours, during which time 8 of the 16 individual matches are shown – while the other 8 are played are played in a lane right next to the TV lane.

 The first live transmission will be streamed on October 24th at 7.00pm UK time via  http://www.winmau.com/sec/1391/WINMAU_TV/ and www.kanalsport.dk as well as on air on Kanal Sport’s TV channel to more than 750,000 households in Denmark. This will be preceded by a documentary at 6.30pm.

The TV deal is to be seen as an attempt to actively advance the public interest for the sport in Denmark and to boost the Danish Darts Union’s (DDU’s) membership base.

The Danish Darts Union was founded in 1965 and is the official darts organisation in Denmark. They are members of the World Darts Federation (WDF) and the DDU is officially sponsored by Winmau.

Darts as a sport already has a lot of attention in Denmark, but hitherto this has only been major international events from abroad. Now the best Danish players will take to the Danish television screens and be streamed across the planet via Winmau TV and Kanal Sport.

The Danish 1st division holds the vast majority of the players that have represented Denmark internationally over the last couple of decades – both at major international events and via the national teams.

Apart from the live transmissions, the TV deal also covers a number of documentaries to be aired on Kanal Sport as well.

“The clubs and players in the 1st Division are eagerly looking forward to helping advance our sport through TV performances. Several of the players have upped the ante in their training as well as started practicing with particular focus on their TV appearances in order to give the viewers the best possible experience – and hopefully get some of them to take up the sport”, says Jesper Thorne, who is responsible for the DDU’s marketing and is a member of the board of directors of the DDU. “In the Danish Darts Union, we hope and believe that this deal can help attract interest towards our sport. We are looking forward to showing our fellow Danes and viewers globally, that darts is a serious sport that allows you to play socially in a team and where cooperation and team spirits are key issues.”
