The Ladbrokes darts league is planning to continue after the presentation night in June, with the league starting a Mid June.

The finer points and rules are at present being finalised by the committee.

The league are aware that during summer months people have extra work and holiday commitments, so we are working on a format with fewer players, with only four needed to form a team, and up to four substitutes proving to be the favourite.

The league will update teams in due course.
