First-ever WDF Gibraltar Classic

The first-ever WDF Gibraltar Classic was held last Saturday, April 15, at the George Federico Darts Hall, located at the Europa Sports Complex.
GDA officials described the event as “well-attended, with players from numerous countries competing.”
“In the youth event, Catalonia’s up-and-coming star Kilian Perales triumphed over Gibraltar’s 13-year-old sensation Nico Bado, winning the final 5-3.
“In the women’s event, Tarika Ward from Gibraltar advanced to the final and faced off against seasoned veteran Christine Redhead. Demonstrating her experience and composure, Redhead claimed the women’s title with a solid performance.
“In the men’s final, Catalonia’s Daniel Zapata defeated Holland’s Davey Monsees 5-2. Monsees, who competes in the local Darts League, made the GDA proud by reaching the final. However, Zapata’s superior play and composure proved too much, allowing him to secure the men’s title.
“It’s worth noting that other notable performances from local players were seen in the tournament. Dyson Parody made it to the semi-finals, while Juan Carlos Muñoz and Craig Galliano reached the quarter-finals, representing Gibraltar well in the competition. Congratulations to all players for their excellent performances.
