Vale Stan Baseley

The association was saddened to learn of the recent passing of Stan Baseley, a long time member, player and a great character. Stan was a well loved & respected man whom we enjoyed playing with and against who loved his darts with a passion. Stan was renowned for his ability to get into his opponent's head during a game and will be long remembered for beating Simon Whitlock in a doubles match several years ago. The funeral service will be held at 3:30pm on Friday 29th April at Northern Suburbs Crematorium, 199 Delhi Road, North Ryde followed by a wake from 4:30pm at North Ryde RSL. Stan will be sorely missed by his friends in the association.

social darts
In addition to the main competition, we also run social darts nights for people that want to play darts but can't commit to playing every week.

Playing socially is also a great way to learn how to play, improve your game and to build the confidence you need to enter competitions.

There are many pubs and clubs around that cater for social players and one of the best is Gladesville Sporties which hosts a fun and friendly social comp on Monday nights.

Contact Neil Ballantine to find out more.

Please also let us know if you have a social comp that you want to promote and we'll list it here and on our Facebook page for you.
