PDC Challenge Tour: Sherrock amongst 205 players competing in Barnsley return
Fallon Sherrock has been named amongst 205 players set to compete upon this weekend’s PDC Challenge Tour return in Barnsley.
The opening four Challenge Tour events of the season took place in late January, but the coronavirus pandemic has since hampered further tournaments taking place.
A World Championship spot and two coveted professional tour cards will be up for grabs across the weekend, with six events going ahead at the Barnsley Metrodome.
Temperature checks will be carried out upon players’ arrival to the venue, with face masks needing to be worn and social distancing adhered to throughout the three days.
Global sensation Sherrock headlines a number of female throwers in Barnsley, joining the likes of Corrine Hammond, Kirsty Hutchinson and Rachael Brooks.
Current Order of Merit leader Scott Mitchell also competes alongside second-placed Rob Collins, with the pair hoping to keep their positions come Sunday evening.
A number of players have also made the journey from abroad, with Thibault Tricole headlining the travellers as the the Challenge Tour’s first Frenchman.
The Challenge Tour recommences on Friday morning, with the first of six £10,000 tournaments taking place in South Yorkshire.
