Young darting sensation Beau Greaves was named young Sportsperson of the Year at the Daily Mirror’s Pride of Sport awards earlier this week. The twelve-year-old Yorkshire schoolgirl has enjoyed an incredible 2016, winning the England Classic, The England Matchplay, the Yorkshire Classic, The Welsh Open and the European Cup.
Beau was one of two recipients of the Young Sportsperson of the Year award. Faith Price, Britain’s best young sprinter at just twelve years old also received the award, having broken a Croydon Schools Athletics record set 34 years before by Donna Fraser, who later featured in the Sydney Olympics.
Aptly nicknamed ‘Beau ‘n Arrow’, Greaves opted to take up darts at the age of 10, following in the footsteps of her older brother Taylor who himself is a promising prospect on the PDC Development Tour.
Less than four months after throwing her first set of darts, Greaves found herself competing in the Winmau World Masters U18 Youth event, where she reached the final before losing out to Robyn Byrne. Yet since then, Beau has gone from strength to strength and has now been recognised for her incredible achievements.

Darting sensation Beau Greaves secured the 2016 Yorkshire Darts Classic title this afternoon- aged just 12! The young darting genius, from Sprotbrough in Doncaster, defeated Louise Simmonds in the final to scoop the title.
Greaves cruised through to the last four of Sunday’s event with successive 3-1 victories against Michelle Binns and Mandy McKenzie respectively.
In the semi-finals, Greaves took on Carole Layne, who had dropped just two legs in her opening two matches. However, the 12-year-old superstar prevailed by a comprehensive 4-1 scoreline to set up a final showdown against the decorated Louise Simmonds.
Simmonds’ route to the final was also relatively serene. She kicked off her campaign with a 3-0 whitewash against Christina Bolt, before defeating Melanie Robinson to reach the last four. Simmonds faced Paula Burgess in the semis, winning a competitive contest 4-2.
Nevertheless, it was the remarkable 12-year-old Greaves who triumphed, beating Simmonds 4-1 to add this prestigious title to her ever-growing resume. Yet Simmonds, who dedicates a great amount of time and effort into developing the youth of Yorkshire darts, also deserves a tremendous amount of credit.
