Ki Mobility has announced its support for two major disability darts tournaments taking place this week.
The company is working with the World Disability Darts Association (WDDA) by sponsoring naming rights of the trophies for the WDDA Winmau World Cup and the WDDA Winmau World Championship events.
The competitions, which commence today in West Lothian, Scotland, draw players from across the globe to compete to win one of the coveted trophies.
Ki Mobility will be in attendance at the events, showcasing a range of its lightweight active user manual wheelchairs.
The WDDA classes itself as the end product of a campaign to open the sport of darts up to players with disabilities.
This has seen the introduction of a new style of dartboard – the Wildfire 137 dart frame – which allows a wheelchair user to fairly compete against a standing competitor.
Samantha Heathcock, UK Marketing Coordinator for Ki Mobility, said: “As soon as we heard about the WDDA World Championships and World Cup event we knew we had to be involved in some way. Ki Mobility’s philosophy centres around being #betterbydesign and that’s not just products and customer service, being better by design also means finding innovative ways to make sports accessible to all, which disability darts certainly does.
“We can’t wait to attend the event and meet competitors from all around the globe. In fact, the international nature of the competition fits well with Ki Mobility’s global distribution network, with Ki Mobility products currently being available in 65 countries across the world.”
