The PDC has announced that next year’s World Championship will feature a larger field of 96 entrants, and that these will definitely include two female players. It’s a step in the right direction, and as well as giving the top female players a chance to compete at the very highest level, it will also raise the profile of women’s darts, which can be no bad thing.

Trina has now recovered from her short stint in hospital and returned to the darts oche to compete in the BDO Open and Classic last weekend. She also competed in the Winmau World Masters earlier this week, however she was beaten by the veteran of the sport, Tricia Wright 4-2 in the quarter finals. A couple of missed doubles cost Trina dearly in a match she was favourite to win. Despite her defeat Trina has shown a return to form which will be of some comfort to the ten times World Champion and six-time World Masters Champion but any defeat hurts and will only make her more determined to win more events throughout the rest of the 2017 darts season.
Trina is now concentrating on the major BDO and EDO ahead of the World Champions in January 2018. Trina is the only ladies dart player to qualify and compete in all on the Lakeside World Championships finals and event she has won ten times and runner-up twice. She will again look to re-write the history book to make it World title number Eleven.

Trina was noticeably absent from the recent England Open and Classic last week. Having won the England open on seven previous occasions she was looking to make it an eight. Unfortunately, for Trina, following a short illness, she was admitted to hospital for exploratory investigations but is now fully on the mend.
Trina will return to the major darts stage at the British Open and Classic at the Bridlington Spa 23-24th September and will look defend her Winmau Masters title that follows immediately after the British Open on the 25-27th September. The Masters will also be staged the Bridlington Spa.
Trina has said she felt a little weak prior to the England events and her doctor felt a further investigation was necessary. Trina spent a few days in her local hospital, but her fans will be pleased to know all is well and she is back on the practise board.
In 2016 Trina had a lean year for dart titles but she still managed to win the two major tournaments on the BDO darts circuit. The Lakeside World Darts Championships, which she won for the tenth time and the Winmau Masters which she won for the sixth time.
In the early 2000’s Trina dominated the ladies darts since with averages most professional men would be proud of. But Trina’s recent form has seen her lose out to fellow England players Lisa Ashton, Deta Hedman and Loraine Winstanley but when Trina is back at her best she still dominates the ladies darts since.
Darts fans will be pleased to know the Winmau Masters will be screen live on the final two days of the competition via Winmau TV. Winmau are Trina’s main sponsor and they are pleased that she will be available to defend her Master's title and will be hoping she can win the title for an incredible seventh time.

Trina Gulliver is one of the most distinguished darts players in the history of the women’s game, notching 10 world titles in her 23-year career.
She has been a constant presence at the top of the world rankings since making her first appearance in the sport in 1994 and displays no signs of abating any time in the near future, despite the rise of the Netherlands’ Aileen de Graaf.
It wasn’t to be World title no. 11 this year for Trina. However, Trina still breaks more records by being the only Ladies player to feature at all 17 Lakeside World Championship Finals.
Trina has managed to qualify all 17 world finals, winning 10 to date and has been runner up on 2 further separate occasions.
This year Trina, lacking a little form but also showing some spells of brilliance was knocked out by Aileen de Graff from the Netherland in the Quarter Finals who in turn lost to the eventual winner, England's Lisa Ashton.
Trina will again try for her 11th World Title in 2018
