World’s Top Darts Stars Returning to Roffey for Charity Night

Chailey 2014Many of the best professional darts players on the planet will take part in a charity fundraising night at Roffey Social and Sports Club as the popular Untouchables event returns to Horsham for a third consecutive year.

But fans are being left to speculate on which darting superstars will be on show on Friday 17 October after the promoter released a mysterious poster showing only silhouettes.

The fundraising night has previously featured such darting luminaries as Michael van Gerwen, James Wade, Simon Whitlock and Raymond van Barneveld.

All proceeds from the night will be split between Chailey Heritage Clinical Services, Bradbury Enhanced Care Service and Bipolar UK.

Jason Thame of promoters MODUS Darts said: “The previous two events here have been very successful and it has been our privilege to raise funds for some fantastic causes, which do invaluable work.

“While we aren’t revealing the line-up until the night itself, I can promise that darts fans will be over the moon with a field boasting many of the PDC’s top players.

“Nowhere else in sport can they see their heroes up close and personal for such great value and in the knowledge that every penny spent goes straight to charity.

“We are hopeful that this will be the best show yet and that we can raise more money for the charities than ever before.”

Fans will be given the chance to take on the arrows aces before the professionals compete in an exclusive tournament.

Photograph and autograph opportunities will also be available on the night.

Tickets are priced at £15 and are available from www.dartshop.tv or 01403 210 223

Bipolar UK is the national charity dedicated to supporting individuals with the much misunderstood and devastating condition of Bipolar, while Bradbury Enhanced Care Service provides crucial support for young adults with complex health needs, physical disabilities and life limiting conditions.

Attendees are reminded that all proceeds will be split between the afore mentioned charities, with further fund-raising activities taking place on the evening.

The two previous stagings of the event have raised a combined total of over £10,000.

2014 World Grand Prix Schedule of Play

Party Poker drawJust 13 days to go until “Doubles-in in Dublin” – the darts tournament on Sky Sports which brings it’s different format to us darts fans.  Not only doubles in, but set-play too.  Makes for something different, which I think is a good thing.  The first round starts Monday 6th October, and concludes Tuesday night… LATE!  Yep get ready for some late nights – if the games are close it could well be after midnight finishes.

The second round kicks off on Wednesday October 8 as the winners of Monday’s games return to the stage, which could include Taylor, Wade, Lewis, Anderson and the Northern Irish trio of Dolan, Mansell and Gurney.

The remaining eight games from the second round will be played on Thursday October 9, with the likes of van Gerwen, Whitlock, Wright, Chisnall and van Barneveld hoping to be in action.

The last eight will then take to the stage on Friday October 10 for the quarter-finals, with Saturday October 11 featuring the semi-finals and Sunday October 12 featuring the final.

In a change for 2014 following discussions with host broadcaster Sky Sports, the format of the semi-finals will now be the best of seven sets, and the final will be the best of nine sets.
