The BDO started to organise in 2001 in Lakseside a Women's World Championship.
From the beginning Trina Gulliver was the dominating player and probably she was one of the players who stood up to achieve such a tournament.
The Women's World Championship of the BDO is played during the BDO Lakeside World Championship every year at the beginning of January. Qualified are the top for ladies of the BDO/WDF Ranking and four women who have qualified otherwise for example as the winner of the World Masters.
The format is very short, best of three sets best of five legs each and was often criticized but till no without any consequences. Trina Gulliver till now reached every final and was beaten only twice - in 2008 by Anastasia Dobromyslova, who shortly afterwards changed to the PDC and in 2009 by Francis Hoenselaar, her long time rival and close friend.
Gulliver and Hoenselaar as well played the best final till now; 2004 Gulliver had a three-dart average of 87.03 and Hoenselaar one of 85.44.
The price money of the tournament is compared to the men's price money almost ridiculous. In 2010 it were 6000 pound for the winner compared to 100 000 for the male winner.
One can always hear there is not much interest in the ladies tournament and usually there is almost nothing televised on Eurosport.
Since 2010 there exists a "Rival" tournament of the PDC, but neither the English Top Ladies nor the Dutch one took part.
In 2013 the BDO announced that the field of participants would be enlarged to 16. The participants will be decided as before by the BDO Invitational Table and the International Play-Offs
