WDF World Cup Women Pairs 1985

The new World Darts Federation president, Australian Peter McMenamin, hosted top darts players from 17 countries in his country from October 17 to 19, 1985. The Crest Hotel in Brisbane, Queensland is the venue. 

Malaysia is the only country that has not previously competed in a WDF World Cup. They only come with their men's team, Norway on the other hand only bring their ladies to Australia.

In the ladies pairs, Linda Batten & Sharon Kemp win 4-2 in the semi-finals against the New Zealand duo Lottie Chalcroft & Bubs Sylva. In the other semi-final, another British duo, Connie McDonald & Lynn McKay from Scotland win with the same numbers against Pauline Munday & Julie Thomas from Australia.

In the final, the English ladies are slowly out off the starting blocks. Linda Batten & Sharon Kemp get 2-0 behind but manage to turn things around. The Scottish duo Connie McDonald & Lynn McKay lose four of the last five legs and so England wins the ladies pairs for the second consecutive time.

Venue: Australia Crest Hotel, Brisbane, Queensland From: Thursday 17 October 1985 Till: Saturday 19 October 1985
