'Darts At Home: Sportsman Special’ to be played on Saturday
Golf’s Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston, Snooker star Mark Selby, Heavyweight Boxer Dave Allen and England and Nottinghamshire Cricketer Alex Hales are set to star in a special sportsman edition of 'Darts At Home' this Saturday to raise money for the NHS.
'Darts At Home: Sportsman Special' will be played from 1400 BST on Saturday May 16 as four household sports stars step up to the Oche.
Broadcast live on the PDC's YouTube channel, fans will be able to donate vital funds to NHS Charities Together throughout the event - CLICK HERE TO DONATE TO NHS CHARITIES TOGETHER.
The competition is based on the PDC's popular 'Darts At Home' concept, which has seen PDC players around the world playing each other remotely via a live video broadcast.
Following on from the ‘Footballers Special’ last weekend that featured Declan Rice, James Maddison, Charlie Austin and Paul Gallagher, four more of the PDC’s most high profile sporting fans will take their turn to prove their prowess with the arrows.
European Tour golfer Johnston will kick things off in the first game of the afternoon against opening batsman Hales, before three-time World Snooker Champion Mark Selby faces the ‘White Rhino’ Allen in the second match.
All the action will be broadcast live on the PDC's YouTube channel, with darts commentator Dan Dawson on hand to run through proceedings, along with live on-screen graphics to enhance the viewing experience.
The tournament will be played in a league format, with all competitors playing each other once over a best-of-three format, and all players beginning each leg on 301 and ending on a double or bullseye.
