Boys Pairs
Craig Galliano and Ethan Smith
- In their first group game they lost 3-1 to the Austrian Pair (Marco Jungwirth & Yang Yu), the game could have been much tighter as both players had darts at double in every leg.

- In their second group game they lost 3-0 against a very strong pair from the Netherlands (Levy Frauenfelder & Ricardo van der Vloed)

Justin Hewitt and Sean Negrette
- In their first group game they faced the German Pair (Dominik Grullich & Mika Stoltenberg), despite leading the game 2-0 their opponents managed to come back and win the game 3-2, a very unlucky result.

- In their second group game they faced the Turkish pair (Fatih Bozan & Onur Yilmaz), just like in their first game, from 2-1 up their opponents managed to comeback and win the match 3-2. Two very unlucky results for them as they could have easily won their two games.
