WDF Europe Cup Men Pairs 1994

The ninth edition of the WDF Europe Cup was played in the Swedish capital Stockholm from October 13-15. For the first time, the milestone of twenty registered countries was reached in the men’s competition. Russia, Latvia and the Czech Republic are the newcomers. There were 18 countries competing in the ladies, only Belgium and Cyprus did not bring their ladies to Sweden. It is also the first WDF Europe Cup after the split, where many of the top players start their own organisation, which will later become the PDC. The British teams in particular should be affected by this on paper.

In the pairs tournament, it was not the English pairs, but the Welsh duos who made it to the final. In the first semi-final Eric Burden & Martin Phillips defeated the Dutch duo Raymond van Barneveld & Roland Scholten 4-1. The Dutchman had knocked Martin Adams & Kevin Kenny from England out of the tournament a round earlier. In the second semi-final, Sean Palfrey & Richie Burnett won with the same numbers against the English couple Steve Beaton & Ronnie Baxter.

The finale became a real thriller, won 4-3 by Eric Burden & Martin Phillips. With that, they made sure that Wales won the WDF Europe Cup pairs title for the first time. Although the Netherlands had previously won medals in 1984, the bronze medal of Raymond van Barneveld & Roland Scholten in this event marks the beginning of the rise of this country on the WDF stage.
