God did the BDO used to get shit over their development tour being U23/U25 (or whatever it was). Shame those people are not still around to have a go at the BDO for doing it...........

He meant to put pdc instead of b do.

Not sure about this event but when the pdc had an event described as a youth event that allowed folks u23/u25 to participate the bdo loyalists would mock that evenr/tour/title. But all seems quiet on the bdo front.

Maybe something to do with the fact that it's a festival that includes many different events, many of which can be described as youth competitions. The blurb on the BDO describes each individual event, not once does it describe one of them as a 'Youth' event. It's an umbrella term that is the easiest way of describing this group of events. Quite different to the PDC example.

Having concurrent events that are half for players under 18 and half for players over 18 makes the whole thing more "youth" than having combined tournaments up to age 23? That's some interesting logic. I guess almost every BDO-ranked tournament weekend isn't far from being a youth festival then.

Edit: Actually, check that. Only two of the six events are actually U18, one is U20.

By the way, my favourite for the men's 18-25 tournament is Adam Howard, if only because he's in the field twice.
