Fallon Sherrock and Lisa Ashton lead to Blackpool, but this weekend in Barnsley are qualifying places for the women’s world match.

The top eight players in the PDC Women’s Series, which follows the event next weekend, will seal their place in the upcoming Women’s World Matchplay match, which will offer the winner a place in the Grand Slam of Darts.

Sky Sports’ Turner reached the final of Event Five – shocked Sherrock on the road – before she did the same in Event Six – but will now try to go one step further when weekend action resumes at Barnsley.

“It was nice to have a good run and then make another good run on it,” Turner said. “Really, really, please, but the next day you underestimate how exhausting it can be, because the matches are only one after the other – they are relentless.

“I finished the first final against Trine Gulliver and I was immediately called to the first match of the next series because we played two a day.

“I made it to the quarterfinals of the third tournament on Sunday, but I was completely exhausted in the afternoon. It was great to be mixed with all these amazing women.”

“It would be great to be part of this opening match for the women’s world. If not, I’ll be in the comment box, but the goal is to play.”

Turner said of the dominance of Ashton and Sherrock: “They’re great. It was nice to get a result against Fallon, but Lisa was pretty adamant.”

“It’s great to see the different names coming into these finals. We said Lisa and Fallon were so, so dominant in eight tournaments, but we also won Trina Gulliver and they were like Rhian Griffiths, Jo.” Locke, Katie Sheldon, so there are competing players.

Turner is now in the best position to compete in the women’s world, but the pitcher from Surrey does not want to put any pressure on herself to get into the last four events.

“I’m fourth right now and I have to be in the top eight by the end of Event 12, so I think all those nerves from Lakeside will come out on the big stage in Blackpool,” she said.
