In association with Red Dragon & The DJ Shop Darts Legend Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor to Headline Grantham Darts Night.
Arguably the most successful sportsman England has ever had will be appearing in Grantham when legendary darts star Phil Taylor takes to the stage alongside fellow world champions in October. Taylor, who won the sport’s World Championship an astonishing 16 times, will be joined by five-time World Champion Raymond Van Barneveld and two-time winner Glen Durrant at Grantham Meres Leisure Centre on Friday 19 October. Joining them will be professional title winner and 2018 Premier League star Gerwyn Price and the ‘King of Bling’ Bobby George – one of the game’s best loved characters. Taylor is the evening’s star attraction. The greatest player ever to throw a dart retired following last January’s World Championship final but fans have a unique chance to see a true sporting phenomenon in action. He will appear alongside one of his greatest rivals in Dutch ace Van Barneveld, who has won several major titles in addition to his five World Championship triumphs. Durrant has won back-to-back BDO World titles and his currently their reigning World Champion. Wales’ Price has picked up professional titles and has reached finals at two big televised events – the UK Open and World Cup. George is a darting great turned popular TV personality and is widely credited with being the first player to bring a sense of showbiz to the sport. He said: “This will be a cracking night. You have got some of the best players from different generations all going head to head, which is something rare in sport. “There is nothing like a night at the darts and if you haven’t sampled it yet then what are you waiting for? You will not be disappointed.
