World Masters Ladies

The first ladies edition of the World Masters was held in 1982. Ann-Marie Davies of Wales was the first ever champion. England’s Mandy Solomons would become the first multiple champion, eventually winning four titles in 1988, 1989, 1993 & 1997.

But as in almost all other events from the mid 1990’s, it’s Trina Gulliver and Francis Hoenselaar who reign supreme. From 1998, Gulliver wins six out of ten finals. Hoenselaar wins in 1999, 2006 and 2008 and is runner up on 4 occasions, three of those four against... Trina Gulliver.

Deta Hedman reaches five finals, winning two of them. Julie Gore and Kathy Wonen also win the tournament twice. Lisa Ashton wins the tournament three times between 2011 and 2019.

Up to and including 2018, the tournament is known as the Winmau World Masters, but in 2019, L-Style and One80 become the new name givers of the tournament. With that the longest naming and cooperation in the darts world disappears.

From 1982 to 1997, the tournament is played in London in various arenas. The tournament then moves to the Lakeside Country Club in Frimley Green for four years before moving to the North East of England. From 2002 to 2009 they play in Bridlington and from 2010 until 2015 in Hull. In 2016 the tournament returns to the Lakeside Country Club in Frimley Green. A year later Bridlington is once again the host. The tournament moves to the Circus Tavern in Purfleet in 2019 with the preliminary rounds being played in the City Hall of Grays.
