The Darts Association of Zambia (DAZ) has commenced preparations for the Zone six tournament in South Africa.

DAZ Secretary General Gibson Bwalya told ZANIS in an interview during the fundraising braii at Masiye Drive Inn Motel, that the final national darts team was expected to be selected by today for the games.

Bwalya said his Association would send two teams to the tournament namely the 13 –
19 years and the 18 – 23 age group, respectively.

He said dependable darts players such as Nathan Phiri and Isaac Muchindu of the Zambia National Service (ZNS) and Kambikambi Darts Clubs, were expected to be in final team.

The Secretary General expressed his hope that the final team would represent Zambia
well at the zone six tournament.

DAZ last year won a number of medals at the regional tournament where the country
won third position with female darts player Eness Chalwe was voted overall winner.

Meanwhile, the association says it lacks adequate equipment such as boards to help
improve the sport in the country.

Bwalya said his association has pleaded with government for help to enable it procure the needed equipment to no avail.

” Government has always been pledging to support DAZ but no assistance has been
rendered.

We have also approached Game stores for concessions on the equipment but as you know
the company is business to make profit ” he said.

He said in most cases most DAZ members were improvising on the equipment such as
making artificial ‘flights’ ( the tails of the darts) which often affects the
scores.

One board and accessories cost in Game Stores K270, 000 which according to Bwalya
is beyond the reach of DAZ to procure for all member clubs in nearly all districts in the country.
