News from Stephen Maphike - South Africa Disabled Darts Competition.
I am pleased to announce that South Africa held it first National disable tournament from 11 – 16 September 2017 In Germiston, Gauteng, South Africa.
This was part of the SA National Corporate Darts Championships.
We had a total of 13 Disable players that participated.
We had three categories where players competed, the results are as follows:
1.Team event Winners: Hannes Niemand
Ruben Van Rensburg
2.Doubles Winners: Hannes Niemand
3.Singles Winner: Hannes Niemand
The singles winner Mr Hannes Niemand from Western Cape
is also the South African Protea Manager for Darts South Africa that will go to the World Cup in Japan during October 2017.
This was the first official tournament for people with disabilities in South Africa and we are planning to have more of these kind of competitions in the further.
An email just in from our South African administrator Stephen Maphike:
"I am pleased to announce that the South African Corporate Darts Committee as approved our request to include a Disable Section at this year's competition.
The completion will be held from the 11 – 16 September 2017, at Dinwiddie Sports Complex in Germiston, Gauteng, South Africa.
The SA Corporates is an annual national event where players from the same corporate companies form a team and compete against each other. At this event they also select a National Corporate Team.
For the first time in history a disable section will be included in this event.
I send out communication to all provinces in South Africa to invite disable players to come and participate in this historical event.
I am hoping that this event will make people of South Africa aware that we do cater for people with disabilities to play darts and encourage corporates to become more involved.
