The venue is set to hold its first ever professional darts event when Phil Taylor, Raymond van Barneveld, James Wade and Dennis Priestley appear in A Night of Champions.

The night sees four of the best players on the planet, all of which are major title winners, go head to head, with 16-times World Champion Taylor topping the bill.

Taylor or ‘The Power’ is one of the most successful men in any sport and is undisputedly the best darts player ever to pick up an arrow, having dominated the sport for the best part of two decades.

The world number one is joined by perhaps his three biggest challengers historically.

Wade has amassed seven major titles, making him the second most successful player in the PDC, while van Barneveld has won the World Championship five times and Priestley twice.

And world number four Wade is delighted to be heading to Guildford.

He said: “I’m really excited about this event. It is area that hasn’t really been visited by top professional darts players so hopefully we will be well received.

“The line-up is fantastic and I’m looking forward to competing on what should be a fantastic night of top quality darts.

“We are all very competitive and will all be doing our very best to take the title of ‘Champion of Champions’.”
