This years’ Top 16 Cup, held at Bariloche bar, has been won by Joe Whitby!

With Mike Howard of Druids Cave B unable to attend, the 17th seed Mike Harding of Teulada Panthers stepped in for the event.

The first round and quarter final matches showed some really good darts – including a 109 checkout from Kia Richardson in his quarter final match.

In the semis, Joe hit a 180 in his win over Nick and Carl came from behind to beat Simon. This meant that the top two seeds would meet in the final!

With Carl aiming to defend his title, the pressure was on both players. However, they didn’t let it show, both finalists hit big scores and were clinical on their doubles, including a 110 checkout from Carl.

Despite this, it was Joe who emerged victorious with the final score ending 3-1.

A big thank you to Jo and Andy of Bariloche and to all those who came to support!
