THE POPULAR Shetland Darts Masters tournament is to take place again next year.
The 2016 event will see eight players – including five world champions – take up their arrows at Lerwick’s Clickimin Leisure Complex on 2 April.
The line-up features current Professional Darts Corporation world champion Gary Anderson, Michael van Gerwen, Stephen Bunting, Scott Mitchell, Terry Jenkins, Vincent van der Voort and Paul Nicolson.
Scottish comedian Wray Thomson will warm up the audience with his Stand Up If You Love the Darts set.
Gideon Ward, from event organisers SDM Promotions, said setting up the event had been a challenge.
“With the top players in greater demand it is becoming more and more difficult to secure a first class line-up for smaller events like this,” he said.
“With the great relationship we’ve built up with both the PDC and the player’s agents over the years, we’re delighted to be running the event yet again.”
Tickets for Shetland Darts Masters will go on sale via Shetland Box Office from 2 December.
