FALLON SHERROCK says she no longer feels welcome on the women’s tour – and considers it a hostile environment.
Yet she feels that other female players want her and fellow leading light Lisa Ashton to LOSE whenever they step onto the oche in same-sex tournaments.
This was summed up by the roar by her peer group when teenage rival Beau Greaves nailed a brilliant 148 checkout in a recent Women’s Series win over Sherrock in Wigan.
Sherrock won the inaugural Women’s World Matchplay in July but has failed to qualify for the worlds next month with Ashton and Greaves securing the spots instead.
Sherrock, 28, said: “It doesn’t matter what I do, I’m still going to get hate.
“I could be the best person in the world and I still get hate or I could do everything wrong and still get it.
“I’m at a point now where I am like, ‘If you are going to hate me, hate me’.
“I’m not going to beat around the bush, I even get it with players now and I genuinely don’t care anymore.
“I’m at a point where I don’t care what anyone does or says to me.
“It’s mostly the women, I’m not welcome with the women much anymore, I learned that in the last event in Wigan.
“I want to try and better myself so I have more opportunity playing on the PDC side with the men, so hopefully I can perform better and improve.
“I feel what me and Lisa have done for the sport, I don’t think they realise how much we have helped.
“It’s not like they should say thank you, but they genuinely don’t care and they are all against us, they cheer against us and it’s just not a very nice environment.”
