I received very sad news from Nicola Shone that her father, Keith Shone, passed away on Monday 19th April. Many players would have known Keith over the past fifty-plus years as a player but also a legend in the sport of darts.
If you were unlucky not to meet Keith, you might well have had business dealing with him via Tommy's Darts International, Pure Darts or the Darts Super Store. Keith started his very successful darts distribution business in the 1970s and has thousands of loyal customers. His business supplied darts equipment to amateur, professional players, many clubs, bars, pubs across the UK and around the World.
Keith was a true darts fan and encouraged everyone that picked up an arrow. He was a workaholic even when his health didn't permit such exertion. He was also a big supporter of Darts501.com / Darts-UK.co.uk and Darts01.com as these sites give unbiased darts information, which mirrored his love for the sport.
Keith would be proud to see his business left in his daughter Nicola's excellent and capable hands. Nicola has worked with her father for over twenty, and she has informed me she will be continuing to run and develop the family business for years to come. The one thing I can assure readers that the work ethic Keith installed into his family will continue, and I wish you all to support Nicola and her small dedicated team in the years to come.
Pure Darts is open for business, but due to the COVID restrictions, phone orders are currently not being taken. Please use their online order form, and if you can not find what you are looking for, please send them an email.
I wish to convey my condolences to Keith's family.
RIP Keith, a true dart legend and friend.
Across all sporting events, there has been a huge surge in the interest for betting as a whole, a good resource for many different sports betting options not found registered to initiatives such as Gamstop continues to grow and attract many new players. But it’s also important to know how to bet – with Darts seeing a steady rise in popularity throughout the past year and the betting market that has always been successful in the sport, it’s another option attracting fans, but what are some of the best dart betting tips out there?
The nine-dart finish is somewhat similar to the 147 breaks in snooker. In the past, it was seen as the ultimate achievement – a rarity – but nowadays the best players can do it with regularity. It’s still noteworthy when it happens, of course. James Wade made the headlines when he threw a nine-darter at the most recent PDC World Championship.
Christmas means something different to everybody, but for those who love their tungsten, there is one thing that stands out more than anything else during the festive season - darts all day, every day.
With the World Grand Prix coming to an end last night, it saw Gerwyn Price take home the title five sets to two against a great challenger in Dirk Van Duijvenbode who surprised many in the tournament by getting to the final in the first place. Price was of course heavy favourite going into the game and looked dominant throughout, even with the slight revival from the Dutchman in the last two sets, it was a comfortable win for the Iceman.
It's been a meteoric couple of years for Rob Cross, who has risen through the ranks to become one of the most consistent throwers on the tour. The former electrician was a relative unknown heading into the 2018 World Darts Championships at Alexandra Palace, but he made a name himself by beating Phil Taylor to secure the biggest prize in darts. Since his heroics in North London, 'Voltage' has struggled with consistency, but his recent form puts him in prime position to wrap up the 2019 Premier League title.
