The first time a major darts competiton has been held at this venue.
Following detailed and indepth negotiations with the management of Venue Cymru, we secured some major concessions, with the 2017 event being held in a large hall, with a special stage being built. The bar is in the same room as the event, but in line with its licence, children are even welcome however with the proviso that prior agreement from one of the organisers must be obtained .

Llandudno Ladies Comp
£100 First Prize
We are pleased to announce that we will be holding the 2017 Llandudno Ladies Open Championship
With a guaranteed first prize of £100 and a runner prize of £40. Although this amount is based on an attendance of just 16 ladies, and should the online registration be far greater than that, then the organizers will make suitable account for this and increase the prize fund to make payments further down (semi and quarter finalist) and possibly raise the overall amount paid out.
Just like the main open comp, those ladies that register online before the 31st August can supply their own “Walk on music”. With this being used for the final, and also entered into the main competition for the first match called up on the day.

Other Fun Comps
The Llandudno Open event has always ensured that the day itself is regarded as a fun day for everyone . And to celebrate the new special venue, this day will not be an exception.
INVITATION YOUTH COMP
Prior to the start of the main competition we are hoping to showcase the young talent from around the area and give them a chance of appearing on stage. Starting at 10:30 come along and support these young players and the future of our game.
Blind Pairs Comp
Always popular is our Blind Pairs comp. When we first started doing this prticular comp 4 years ago , it was only ever meant as first round losers comp, but since then more and more players wanted to be involved. So this is now run until a specific time OR we have the numbers involved to ensure that the comp finishes before the semi finals and main final event.
Six Of The Best
We’re fully aware not everyone will want to enter the main comp, perhaps they feel that their own standard of darts wouldn’t allow them to compete or it might be they have a fear of marking, or it could simply be that prefer to play “Round The Board”, even within our own league we have a “Round The Board” division. Despite this, the support we get is superb.
So this year we have decided to try and cater for these players as well
Once the main event is underway, we will be running a little comp at the same time called “6 of the best”
Any player or spectator can go onto the stage and throw a £1 into one of three designated buckets. The Llandudno open will take just 20p from every £1 with rest being returned as prize money.
- “Round The Board” – Open to players not registered in the main open event
- “501 LIMITED” – Open to players not registered in the main open event
- “501 ALL” – Open to ALL players and spectators
You have just 6 darts to throw, hence six of the best.
If you decide to go for “501” its the culmative score of your six darts.
If you decide to go for “Round the Board” it’s how far you get with just 6 darts, doubles count but not trebles.
The score will be recorded, and the top four players at the end of the day from each will play off to be the winner and win the bucket. A player can only hold one top four position. For example if one player holds all top four scores then only his top score will count.
You can however enter as many times as you want.
We cant promise you that you’ll be met with a dominatrix with a whip…..but then again….you never know!
May I finally give a big thank you to Peter Hibbert and all the staff at the Evans Hotel for all the support they have given over the last 4 years and in holding the event.
Many will still notice the Peter Hibbert is still an organiser in regards to this event.
And another big thank you to Mr Sam Bradley who due to work commitments was unable to be on the committee this year, but without whom this event would never have taken place.
