Super talented Beau

Beau first started playing darts eight years ago due to her brother’s interest in the sport, from something that initially started as a hobby Beau then went onto compete in local competitions, since securing sponsorship Beau has been competing in national and worldwide competitions reaching the semi-finals of the World Championship Women’s darts in 2020 aged just 16.

When talking about the WDF World Championship tournament Beau said: “I am a little bit nervous, but I try not to put too much pressure on myself because that is when the enjoyment stops. I would obviously love to win the tournament, but my main aim is to enjoy it and I am really looking forward to the competition.”

Doncaster College announced a one-year sponsorship for Beau, this will help to fund further tournaments and will go towards travel expenses with competitions taking place in Scotland and even in Denmark.
