The Poulo League bursts into life

MASERU – The Lesotho Darts Association will host the inaugural Poulo League on Saturday at Katleho Guest House in Ha Leqele.
The tournament has been named after its main sponsor, businessman Martin Poulo, who has injected M10 000 to give life to the event.
Poulo said the plan is to hold the league annually and Saturday’s event is just the beginning.

Entrance for spectators will be free and the purpose is to teach children about darts and introduce the sport to the public. Nine teams will compete in the Poulo League with each side comprising of 10 players. Poulo said darts has the potential to become a popular sport in the country because it is cheap and anyone can play from the comfort of their home.

“The tournament will be held this coming weekend and its purpose is to teach children and the entire public about darts; the other thing is to introduce indoor games,” Poulo told thepost. “We have nine teams composed of 10 players. The plan is to have a continual tournament because I like this sport. Darts is one of the cheapest sports and you can play it in your house,” he added.

“We want to host this tournament every year and this is a starting point whereby nine teams will play. In September we want to play this tournament again as darts involves tourism and September is tourism month. We sponsored the tournament with M10 000 and hopefully the tournament will be successful,” he said. Meanwhile, Lesotho Darts Association officials said they will allow women and children to compete in the Poulo League because darts is not about gender or age.
