European Darts Trophy Update

THE final European Tour event of 2014 takes place this weekend, with the European Darts Trophy set to see 48 players compete in the first PDC event in Leipzig, Germany.

Following seven previous European Tour events this year, the season of continental PDC ProTour events concludes from Friday September 19-Sunday September 21 at the Kohlrabizirkus.

The £100,000 European Darts Trophy is the final event before the cut-off for the World Grand Prix, with the world’s top 16 players joined by 14 qualifiers from the ProTour Order of Merit plus the top two Irish/Northern Irish players from the ProTour Order of Merit.

From the original entries for the European Darts Trophy, Gary Anderson and Phil Taylor have now withdrawn, with the highest-ranked qualifiers – Terry Jenkins and Michael Smith, who came through the UK Qualifier in July – now moving up to become seeded players.
A further two places will now be on offer in Thursday’s final qualifying events in Leipzig, with nine players set to come through the European Qualifiers and five players to win through the Host Nation Qualifier.

Friday’s first round of the European Darts Trophy sees the 32 qualifiers drawn to face each other, with play in one bumper session of 16 games from 3pm local time. The 16 seeded players then enter the event in the second round on Saturday, with play held across two sessions as they come up against the first round winners.

ONE HUNDRED AND ARTY:  Design Jackpot’s Shirt!

Lewis gets hands on at Target Darts

He’s had new darts, now help design his new shirt!

Two-time World Darts Champion, Adrian “Jackpot” Lewis and his leading sponsor Dulux Decorator Centre, are on the hunt for a new shirt design for Adrian to wear at one of the biggest tournaments later this year.

The darts legend is running the competition for young people aged between 11 – 16 years old. Adrian will wear the new shirt on TV and at a major up and coming tournament, the Grand Slam in November.

Not only will Adrian model the winning shirt when he plays against the world’s best darts players, but the competition winner will also receive a replica shirt in their own size, signed by the man himself.

Adrian said: “I’m looking forward to leaving the fate of my new shirt in the hands of budding designers. I know how creative kids can be so this competition provides me with the opportunity to get a shirt that is different and memorable.

“I can’t wait to go through the entries, I’m looking for the design to be related to darts and I want it to really stand out – hopefully the new shirt will bring me a little bit of luck in my tournaments too!”

The competition was organised as part of Adrian’s ongoing community work. Adrian has teamed up with his sponsors, Dulux Decorator Centre, to hold a number of events and activities throughout the year to work with individuals and groups.

For further information, or to enter the competition, please visit, where you can simply download the template shirt, sketch your design and send your entry to Adrian Lewis competition, Tangerine PR, Giants Basin, Potato Wharf, Castlefield, Manchester, M3 4NB.

 The deadline for entries is Monday Friday 26th September.

 Dulux Decorator Centre is the UK’s leading decorating specialist offering expert advice to help accomplish any decorating job – big or small. Each centre carries a wide range of products, from paint to wallpaper, accessories and tools, as well as a decorator recommendation service.
