The Butterbowl, on Butterbowl Drive in Farnley, has been hosting a local darts competition as part of a nationwide Proper Pubs tournament, which will see the national winner walk away with a £1,000 prize.

71 pubs are taking part in the tournament, with local heats ending last Sunday.

Proper Pubs is the operator managed platform of Hawthorn, The Community Pub Company.

Each pub will run several rounds of the competition at a local level, in which points are tallied up over the six-week preliminaries, before determining a winner who will receive a £50 bar tab for their community Proper Pub. Winners across the country will then come together to battle it out for the grand prize.

The final, set to take place on the 27 March, will be held at the Little Oak in Boughton, Chester, which will be hosting an evening of entertainment as the knockout tournament reaches its climax. 

Matthew Gurney, Operations Director, Proper Pubs, said:

 “Darts is a great sport to bring the community together, so it’s a key component for many of our Proper Pubs. There’s been great engagement from Proper Pubs up and down the country, from Southampton to Fife, and we’ve already seen some exceptional talent on display!”

The Butterbowl re-opened in January after a £67,000 refit.
