This event was formerly known as the Prince Rupert Open and it has been run annually since 1983. It was renamed the Joe Grandy Memorial Open in 2013, in honour of Joe Grandy. Joe, along with his wife Annie, were key in ensuring that darts continued to be played competitively in Prince Rupert. They kept the Saturday night drop in darts alive for years and they never missed a tournament.
Joe won numerous titles in mixed doubles, men’s doubles and singles as befitted a player of his quality. But, he didn’t win every time and this is where the true measure of the man could be judged. He was unfailingly gracious when he won and equally so when he was beaten, which wasn’t often. He would be the first one up to chalk for the guy who had beat him as well. That twinkle in his eye was there whether he won or lost.
Joe was a gentleman. He is sadly missed. The renaming of this tournament in his honour is recognition of the esteem that those privileged to have known him held him in, and is a way of remembering a fine player and an exceptional man.
