Brown downs Dixon for treble...

Warkworth RSA Darts Club president Craig Brown beat fellow club player Grant Dixon in all three of the club's major finals this year to take the triple crown.

Brown won the Double Start Club Champs, Handicap Club Champs and the most prestigious competition, the Men's Club Champs.

“I've only won the handicap competition once before, so it was great to win all three this year,” Brown says.

“Dixon won the men's club champs last year, so I was pretty pleased to beat him 3-2 in a close final.”

Although he has become one of the strongest players in the club, Brown has only played the game for three years.

“I used to watch the sport on television and then I decided to give it a go and caught the bug.

“I will practice for between half an hour and three hours every day so it's mainly muscle memory that has got me this far, rather than natural talent.”

At home in his dedicated darts room he can regularly hit a top score of triple 20, but says competition play is another matter.

“There are other pressures involved against other people, but it's a great feeling when you do get in the zone and can blank everything else out.”

Although he has recently confined his play to Warkworth and in the City of Sails Auckland competition, he used to travel across the North Island to compete.

“I've been as far as Hawkes Bay and New Plymouth and made the main round of the Auckland Open, and three Grand Prix events.”

His greatest win was over Craig Caldwell, the New Zealand number one at the time.

The Warkworth RSA Darts Club welcomes people at any skill level to join.

Club nights are Thursday at 7.30pm, with a $4 entry fee.
