WDF Europe Cup Women Singles 1990

The seventh edition of the WDF Europe Cup was held from 8 to 10 November at the Corradino Sports Pavilion in Malta. Seventeen countries took part which was a new record. The big question was of course who could keep the favourite English teams of the WDF Europe Cup titles. Greece is participating in a WDF Europe Cup for the first time.

In the singles tournament, just like in the pairs tournament, there was an England versus Belgium final. Sue Edwards, the defending champion, won in the quarterfinals against Germany’s Andrea Knopp and in the semi-finals against the Finnish Paivi Jussila. Her opponent in the final, Vicky Pruim, had eliminated Sharon Colclough early on, then also beat Cinzia Borgia from Italy in the quarterfinals and Sandra Greatbatch from Wales in the semi-finals.

Sue Edwards would become the first lady to successfully defend the WDF Europe Cup singles title. In the final she easily wins 4-0 against the Belgian Vicky Pruim. Never before has Belgium won a silver medal in the ladies WDF Europe Cup history.
