Resignation Letter from Ray

Vienna 20th November 2019

Dear members,

It is with great regret that I must announce that I shall sadly be unable to complete my term as Secretary General of the WDF. Recent personal developments have resulted in the need for increased family commitment on my behalf and for a significant career change to make such commitment possible. This has had, and will continue to have, a substantial impact on my time capacity and also entails even greater restrictions on travel, now that I can no longer operate on a free-lance basis. I realize the inconvenience of ending my term prematurely, however the situation demands prioritization and I’m afraid I must act accordingly.

I would like to thank the entire WDF for the opportunity to be a part of such a great organization, particularly at a time when the world of darts is on the verge of some exciting changes; ones which I am convinced will be greatly beneficial to the sport on every level. I believe the WDF is on the right path to seeing darts get recognized as an Olympic sport and thereby also an officially, nationally recognized sport in countries worldwide. Platforms now exist for player representation and for our youth. I therefore urge you all to continue to show your support for the WDF Executives and new commission members as the implementation of these changes comes into play.

Thank you again for everything; I wish you all the very best in these exciting times.

Good darts!
Ray Laverty
