Gurney becomes latest player to withdraw from PDC Home Tour due to WiFi issues
Daryl Gurney has joined Gary Anderson in withdrawing from the innovative PDC Home Tour due to an unreliable WiFi connection.
The PDC Home Tour will consist of 32 consecutive evenings of live darts, coming to you directly from players’ homes across the world.
Gurney has become the third of the world’s top ten to confirm that they will not be participating following Anderson and world number one Michael van Gerwen doing similar.
The former World Grand Prix champion said via social media: “Sorry to everyone but I won’t be participating in the fantastic PDC innovation Darts at Home.
“My internet WiFi is not up to scratch and the set-up I use for practice wouldn’t be sufficient. Good luck to everyone.”
Despite a number of well-known players opting to turn down the invitation, reigning world champion Peter Wright and world number three Gerwyn Price have took up the offer.
Wright will feature in Friday’s opener from 7.30pm with action streamed live and free of charge via PDCTV.
