Anderson To Make Selco Appearance In Leicester
Dartsplanet.tv will be in attendance in Leicester over the weekend for the Paddy Power Champions League of Darts, and we will also be present for some pre event entertainment involving two time PDC World Champion, Gary Anderson ahead of the weekend’s festivities.
Sports fans across Leicester can warm up for a huge weekend of darting action in their city by testing their ability against one of the world’s leading players.Anderson, who is the current world number three, will be defending his Champions League of Darts title at the Morningside Arena on Saturday and Sunday, and will be at Selco Builders Warehouse on Parker Drive (LE4 0JP) in Leicester between 11am and 1pm on Friday.
Members of the public are invited to come along to the branch to take on the ‘Flying Scotsman’, who won the World Championship in 2015 and 2016, in special nine dart challenges.
We will have exclusive access to the event, and we will be playing a leg against Gary, as well as asking him some questions about his defence in the East Midlands, and his aspirations for the remainder of the year. The World Series of Darts Finals and the Grand Slam of Darts are around the corner for Anderson, ahead of the big one, the World Championship, that begins in December.
