Bendigo will host two national sporting events later this year when the 37th Australian Darts Championships and the Australian Taekwondo National Championships come to the city. From July 26 to August 6 the Australian Darts Championships will be held at the All Seasons Hotel. Each state and territory will be represented by the best eight male and female players. The Victorian team includes Justin Thompson, who played in the Bendigo Dart League and is delighted to be given the opportunity to display his skills in his hometown. The Bendigo Stadium will host the Taekwondo Championships from August 25 to 28 and it is the first time in the history of the sport that the event has been held outside of an Australian capital city.
