Peter Wright is aiming to head to Alexandra Palace as world number one in December.

The PDC will stage its first televised women's tournament this summer following the introduction of the Betfred Women's World Matchplay on Sunday July 24 in Blackpool.

The eight-player tournament will be held in one afternoon session at the Winter Gardens, with a £25,000 prize fund on offer as well as a spot in the 2022 Cazoo Grand Slam of Darts.

The field will be comprised of the top eight players from the 2022 PDC Women's Series Order of Merit following the 12 events being staged in the first half of the year across three double-header weekends.

The Betfred Women's World Matchplay will be the first fully-televised event staged by the PDC, continuing the commitment to the growth of the sport show in recent years with an event broadcast on Sky Sports.

The event takes the PDC's commitment to women's darts to £125,000 in prize money this year, with entries now open for the PDC Women's Series.

Qualification for the Betfred Women's World Matchplay will be based on prize money across the year's opening 12 PDC Women's Series events.

The opening PDC Women's Series weekend will be staged on March 12-13 in Barnsley, with two events held per day.

The second weekend will be held on April 30-May 1 in Wigan, with the decisive third weekend taking place on June 25-26 in Barnsley.

A further two PDC Women's Series weekends will be held on August 27-28 in Niedernhausen and on October 29-30 in Wigan, with two events taking place per day across each two-day weekend.

Entry to PDC Women's Series events costs £25 per event for players aged 16 and above, and can be made through the PDC Entry System from 1200 GMT on Wednesday February 2.

Ashton had also competed on the PDC ProTour in 2021/22 as a Tour Card Holder, while Sherrock reached the Nordic Darts Masters final last year and both players achieved ton-plus averages in televised games.

Mikuru Suzuki also secured a Women's Series event win last year, and both Deta Hedman and Anastasia Dobromyslova have joined Suzuki, Sherrock and Ashton in competing at the World Darts Championship in recent years.
