Dr Darts News Letter 84
STACY BROMBERG (1956-2017)
The world of darts was saddened to hear of the death last month of top US ladies’ darts player Stacy Bromberg. She was 60. Stacy, was born in Los Angeles but lived in Las Vegas, was a popular member of the global darting community and had been Number One in the American Darts Organization (ADO) rankings a record sixteen times: thirteen of those in a row. She was US Ladies National Champion (501) on eleven occasions and Ladies National Champion (Cricket) four times. Stacy was also a member of the US darts team (eight times) which competed in the World Darts Federation (WDF) World Cup.
In the UK Stacy reached the quarter-finals of the British Darts Organisation’s Ladies World Darts Championships in 2002 and competed on many occasions in the WINMAU World Masters. In 2010 Stacy made darts news headlines when she became the PDC/Unicorn Women’s World Champion defeating England’s Tricia Wright in the final on stage at the Winter Gardens, Blackpool.
Tributes to Stacy have saturated social media: such was her popularity within the sport. Professional Darts Corporation Chairman Barry Hearn said,
This is very sad news for all of us at the PDC and we send our condolences to Stacy’s family and friends at this difficult time. Stacy was a wonderful ambassador for darts and a lovely person whose dignity whilst battling cancer and selflessness in raising huge sums of money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation was boundless. She was a larger than life character and will be missed by so many people.
