Anne ‘Sleepy’ Kramer

Anne Kramer has been involved in darts for over 20 years, and was one of the top female players in Arizona by the age of 16. She is also married to former USA No.1 men’s player John Kramer.

Playing mainly in the SoCal ADO region, Anne has many stories and experiences to share with the darting community and is very passionate about all things tungsten. Despite her ‘sleepy’ nickname we know she can yap with the best of them and we look forward seeing plenty of interesting and insightful articles.

We don’t cover as much of the darts from across the pond as we should, hopefully Anne can redress the balance in her unofficial role as DartsMad USA correspondent.

Find out more about Anne on her own website

The Mystery Lady

What can we tell you about The Mystery Lady? Well not much as it happens or it wouldn’t be a mystery. Let’s just say she’s a lady, she plays darts, and would like to write about her experiences playing for her local team.

So DartsMad has given TML the platform to spout lyrical on all things local pub darts and whatever else crosses her mind when sat in front of the laptop.

Watch out for TML’s regular darting ruminations and find her on Twitter.

Lenny Boyle

Lenny is a student journalist and a fan of what he describes as “the greatest sport on the planet”. We tend to agree so we gave him some airtime on DartsMad to bring his musings to our readers.
