Lisa Ashton has welcomed the PDC’s move to ring in the Women’s Series which takes place in October with a two-day, four event series in Cannock.
This will gleam this year’s World Championship spots and a Grand Slam of Darts spot but while ‘The Lancashire Rose’ who made history by becoming the first female player to win a Tour Card outright at Q-School believes it is a great move; she has urged others to make it count.
“It is brilliant news and it’s come at the right time for ladies darts to be fair. It’s nice that they’ve been listening to us and giving us this opportunity.
“It’s giving ladies darts another step, another level. We’ve always had the BDO and that’s the only competition we’ve ever had. We’ve never had the opportunity to go up another level.
“To be brought into the Professional Darts Corporation. This is the chance now and we’ve got to back it and prove what we’ve been saying. I know we are all determined to do it.”
