More than 80 competitors took part in the Stretford Darts Open at The Bishop Blaize.
Pub manager Ben Plunkett, pictured left with (left to right) professional darts players Stuart Kellet and Shaun Griffiths, and host SKY Sports darts commentator John Gwynne organised the event at his pub in Stretford, Manchester.
A 501 knock-out tournament, with the best of three and five games played, saw participants pay £5 to enter, with a £250 first prize up for grabs.
Coventry’s Mark McGeeny won the competition, from the 10 female and 72 male competitors, beating Oldham’s Paul Cartwright in the final.
Event sponsor Greenfield Real Ale Brewery produced a beer especially for the occasion.
The 501 Ale (5.01% ABV), a seasonal ale, was launched at the pub on the day and also served in all 16 pubs in Manchester’s central and south suburbs.
Ben, who made it through to the last 16 of the tournament, said: “The whole event was a great success. Everyone really enjoyed it – and we hope to make it an annual contest.”
A raffle, with prizes including a signed darts board and professional darts sets, raised £150 for CLIC Sargent.
