Quartet share wins on JDC Advanced Tour's opening weekend

The opening weekend of the 2022 JDC Advanced Tour saw four different players claim victory as the race to the JDC Junior World Darts Championship began.

Luke Littler followed up his victory in the JDC Super 16 final in Milton Keynes last month with a win in Event One, as he defeated Leighton Bennett in a deciding leg in the final.

Bennett enjoyed a 102 average during Event Two as he this time went all the way, defeating Riley Rees Tucker in the final.

The Event Two runner-up picked up his first JDC Advanced Tour title as he defeated Jenson Walker in the Event Three final.

Event Four saw another different winner, as Derbyshire's Henry Coates defeated Bennett 6-5 in the decider, denying his teenage rival a second win of the weekend.

The four events made up the first of three weekend's on the 2022 JDC Advanced Tour, with details also now confirmed for the JDC's festival of darts in Gibraltar in November.

A JDC World Cup team event will be held on Tuesday November 22, with the Gibraltar Open and MvG Masters events across the next two days.

Friday November 25 will see the JDC Junior World Darts Championship's early rounds staged as players bid to win spots in the final, which will take place on stage at Alexandra Palace during the Cazoo World Darts Championship.
