WDF Europe Cup Women Singles 1982

At the third WDF Europe Cup darts we see next to the men also for the first time the ladies compete at the WDF Europe Cup. They get their own competitions separately. Where the men play with four players, the ladies play with two. As a result, there are three titles up for grabs among the ladies. Singles, pairs and the overall title.

Twelve countries will compete on October 15 and 16 at the Cliffs Pavilion at Westcliff on Sea in England in the third WDF Europe Cup darts for the men. Norway makes its debut and France does not bring a women's team, so that eleven countries compete in the first WDF Europe Cup for the ladies.

In the singles it was all about Wales. Both ladies made it to the final. The number one in the Women's International Rankings, Maureen Flowers from England lost 3-0 in the quarterfinals to the world’s number two Sandra Gibb. In the semi-finals Sandra beat Northern Ireland’s Kate Lynch with the same score line. In the other semi-final Ann Marie Davies beat Linda Batten. 

In the final Sandra Gibb is stronger than her teammate Ann-Marie Davies and wins 3-1. Sandra achieves an average of 65.1 and Ann Marie of 60.9 which was quite nice, especially for that time.
