Fallon Looking To Defend

Reigning champion Fallon Sherrock will begin the defence of her title against four-time Women’s World Champion Lisa Ashton in a crunch quarter-final tie.

Fallon Sherrock defeated Aileen de Graaf in last years final, but comes in to this tournament as second favourite.

Bookies favourite Beau Greaves kicks off her title challenge against Dutch debutant Noa-Lynn van Leuven.

Elsewhere, second seed Mikuru Suzuki plays last year’s runner-up Aileen de Graaf, with Robyn Byrne and Rhian O’Sullivan set to collide in the other quarter-final tussle.

The semi-finals and final will take place later in the afternoon, and the winner will qualify for November’s Grand Slam of Darts as well as the 2023/24 Paddy Power World Darts Championship.
