Blantyre and Districts Darts League (BDDL) has said it is satisfied with the improvement in the number of teams that have confirmed participation in this year’s league.
The league was launched last weekend at Blantyre Sports Club.
The number of teams has increased from 15 to 17 this year in both Division One and Division Two and the league’s treasurer Muchanakhwaye Mpuluka said the development meant the league was making progress.
“This means we are on point in terms of reaching out to more teams in the Southern Region. There will be more competition this year and we anticipate exciting matches. We have seen teams from Mwanza, Mulanje and Chikwawa joining and we hope more districts will join us in the future,” he said.
Mpuluka added that BDDL was also planning to introduce youth leagues to carter for the up-and-coming players.
“For us to sustain the sport in the region we need to incorporate the youth. We have a lot of talented boys and girls therefore we plan to set up a league for them so that they should develop their game. We are looking for funding to make sure we get the kids involved at a young age,” he said.
BDDL has not yet secured sponsorship for this season but Mpuluka gave assurance that they would secure one soon.
Blantyre Sports Club are the team to beat after winning the league in the last three consecutive seasons.
