2020 Celtic Challenge Trophy
The Celtic Challenge Trophy was devised to fill a gap in the calendar as several of the Home Nations were not attending the 2017 World Cup in Japan.

The inaugural event was held in the CISWO Club, Glenrothes and host nation Scotland won both the Mens and Ladies titles with Wales runners-up in both and Northern Ireland in third spot.  It was such a popular event that it was decided to continue the championship for an initial three years, thus giving players the chance of extra International caps for their home nations.

The following year Northern Ireland were hosts and the event was held in Newry.  This year again the host nation won the Mens title with Wales taking the Ladies event.

In 2019 Scotland and Northern Ireland travelled to Merthyr to contest the event and true to form the Mens title went to the host nation as Wales lifted the trophy.  The Ladies event was won by Scotland, taking their second title in this challenge.

This year the event returns to the CISWO Club on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd February and it is hoped that home advantage will play a great part in the outcome of both titles.  The SDA hope that a large home support will give the players a fantastic atmosphere to play in and that the spectators will have the chance to see the best of Scottish darts up-close.
