Hull scores darts bullseye

Hull has hit the bullseye by becoming the venue for this year's BDO Winmau world masters competition.

Reigning and double world masters champion Martin Adams, is heading the list of players who will compete at Hull City Hall in October.

The event has traditionally been played at Bridlington Spa.

Paul Roggeman, conference and events manager for East Riding Council, said it had offered five dates, but the BBC couldn't fit it in their sports schedule. 'It's only for one year and they might come back to Bridlington,' he added.

This year the total prize fund is being increased to a record-breaking 66,500 and there will be extensive BBC1 and BBC2 coverage over the weekend.

An estimated 2,500 darts fans, players and officials are expected to attend.
