Women from Marco’s (BMARC) held a quite remarkable grip on the Grantham club darts scene back in the 1970s.

Upsets when they were playing were rare, the strongest opposition at the time coming from Honington. A 1971 Grantham Club Darts League finals night at Gonerby Club saw both teams dominate their matches.

Pictured are members of the 1971 Marco’s team – Shirley Stafford, Mary Squires, Phyllis Snell, Crystal Atkinson, Grace Knightall, Beryl Healey and Madge Vale.
