BDO Darts World Championship

The BDO Darts World championship is the annual world championship event hosted by the British Darts Organisation. The tournament is sometimes referred to as the Lakeside World Championship due to the residency that it has taken up at the Lakeside Country Club in Frimley Green, Surrey since 1985.

The BDO Darts World Championship was seen as the pinnacle of the sport up until the breakaway PDC group was formed, and was the only darts world championship event up until the PDC World Championships was first played in 1994. Since then the Lakeside World Championship has lost some of its reputation but none of its prestige.

Eric Bristow has won the most BDO World title in the history of the championships. Five times he rewarded his BDO World Championship Darts Betting backers by lifting the title. Raymond van Barneveld won the BDO title four times before moving over to the PDC and winning their world championship at the first time of asking. Phil Taylor also won two titles before moving over to dominate the PDC organisation.

Current champion Martin Adams has won the title three times including the last two consecutively.
