THE stars of the PDC are now heading Down Under to prepare for the World Series of Darts treble-header in Brisbane, Melbourne and Hamilton.

Following the Betfred World Matchplay and last weekend's Players Championship double-header in Hildesheim, the competitors for the August treble-header are stepping up their preparations.

Australian duo Simon Whitlock and Kyle Anderson, Dutch legend Raymond van Barneveld and New Zealand's Cody Harris all competed in Germany over the weekend before beginning their journey to Brisbane.

Harris, who will only be competing in the NZ Darts Masters, was the top performer of that quartet as he reached Sunday's semi-finals - his first time in the last four of a Players Championship - before losing to eventual champion Brendan Dolan.

Australian qualifier Damon Heta, meanwhile, won the Australian Open event staged by Darts Australia as he prepared in style for his return to the World Series stage in all three events.

The World Series of Darts' August treble-header begins with the Brisbane Darts Masters at the BCEC on August 9-10. Tickets are available now via THIS LINK.

The action then heads to the Melbourne Arena for the Melbourne Darts Masters on August 16-17. Tickets are available now via THIS LINK.

The sport's stars then cross the Tasman Sea to Hamilton's Claudelands Arena for the NZ Darts Masters, presented by Burger King & TAB, on August 23-24. Tickets are available now via THIS LINK.

Fox Sports in Australia and Sky Sport in New Zealand will be amongst the PDC's international broadcast partners showing live coverage.

PDCTV-HD Rest of the World Subscribers (outside of the UK, Ireland and Netherlands) can watch live through video.pdc.tv.

UK television coverage on ITV4 will be delayed to be broadcast each evening.
