On the 22nd June 2019 the 7th Annual Kusadasi Darts League Awards Ceremony was held at the Marina Hotel, opposite Kusadasi Marina.

There were awards for the Winners ‘Molly Malones’ for the 2nd year running as well as 2nd place ‘The Warriors’, 3rd place ‘Drunken Pilots’ and a whole host of players who won various other Awards including 12 players getting max ‘180’ medals, more than any other season since the KDL was founded.

The KDL is a tremendous success story, starting with 4 teams and now accommodating 15 teams. It has certainly contributed to bonding the Expat community with our Turkish community. We have been able to meet and socialise with so many Turkish citizens who are now firm friends, all down to the simple game of darts. In fact Turkish players now account for the vast majority of our members.

Next year we will be starting the 8th KDL Darts season in October. If anyone is interested in joining the KDL, either individual players or new teams and venues, please get in touch with our Chairman Geoff Anderson either via Facebook Group page ‘Kusadasi Dart Ligi’, or else pop in to the Santana Bar in Centrum and let Fikret know of your interest. Believe me when I tell you that most of our members had never thrown a dart in their lives before they joined.

It is above all else a social evening held every Monday throughout the winter season. Many thanks to all involved but special thanks to Geoff who amongst other things organises the Awards ceremony, a difficult task in itself.
