THE Annual Darts Tournament for East African Countries has been shelved again and this time pushed forward to the mid next year, the organisers confirmed.
Conducted in rotation, the EA Darts event is usually held yearly in turns between Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania and this year, the latter was to stage the country’s leg of the event in Biharamulo District of Kagera.
The dubbed, ‘Tanzania Open Inter-State’ Darts that were scheduled to take place from the 26th to the 28th of June this year, have been forced into postponement according to the official statement from the Tanzania Darts Association (TADA).
“We are sad to inform you that the Tanzania Darts Association will not be able to organise the East African Games as per East African Darts Federation and TADA calendar, and this is due to Covid-19 scare,” said the Association’s Secretary General, Victor Kimambo.
In another development, the TADA official has written to Regional Darts secretaries regarding the Association calendar which starts on June 1st 2020, which is apparently undergoing changes, indicating the possibility of other local darts events to resume in July.
All Regional officials in conjunction with their zonal counterparts need to start preparation and complete their players’ selections before July 13th , 2020 deadline so that TADA may start fixing the finals in Dodoma.
