A British female darts star star gave up her chance to the win the Denmark Open after refusing to face a transgender player, Noa-Lynn van Leuven in a quarter-final match

Deta Hardman, 64, is one of the most well known figures in the women’s darts scene, and in the past has called on the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC) and the World Darts Federation (WDF) to exclude transgender athletes from women’s tournaments. 

What She Said

‘I’m not playing against a man in a women’s event,’ bluntly told German newspaper Bild. 

Fans React

Meanwhile, her supporters were quick to offer the darts star compensation for her decision to boycott the tournament, offering to make up any prize money she may have lost.

She Rebuffed Official Statement

Yet Denmark Darts paid her out in full for the event. It was reported that Hedman had initially told organisers she was ill but hitting back at the claim, she wrote on X/Twitter: ‘No fake illness, I said I wouldn’t play a man in a ladies event.’

The sportswoman went onto write to Save Women’s Sport – an international campaign calling for ‘fairness in women’s sport’ that says ‘biological sex matters’.
