Here we are presenting top local female Darts player Jo “Twinkle” Clements. Jo joins us to discuss how she got into the game of darts from the moment she picked up her first set. Jo is currently ranked #20 in the BDO ladies world rankings. After the huge success of Fallon Sherrock competing in the PDC world championships and becoming the first female player to win a match against a male player, the female side of darts is most definitely on the rise. With sponsorship Jo fully believes she can achieve her dream of playing at the world championships one day after just missing out in 2019. This is a great insight into ladies darts and we hope to see Jo on that big stage in the near future “GOOD LUCK JO JO”
