My darts website really taking off

Steve Grubb and Dave Ahmet - two darts pro's who I now call mates

I thought I’d find time while watching the British Golf Open to write a quick update about my golf website; Darts, Beers & Cheers! .

Since creating the darts fansite back in January (2010) I have posted several hundred updates and articles, sharing news on the PDC (and some BDO) darts scene.  I now have around 15 interviews, with darts players, darts officials, and even the more glamorous side of the darts, the ‘walk on girl’.

Recent interviews include such famous players as Mervyn King, Simon Whitlock, and Sky Sports presenter Dave Clark.

Because of my website I have become friends with a number of professional darts players, and am invited along to the PDC Pro tour (non public darts tournaments, where only some 120+ dart pros and their guests are allowed).   I am often in contact with the press officer of the PDC (Dave Allen), and have been working with Bravo TV to help publicise their upcoming European Darts Championship show.

It’s keeping me very busy, with a lot of my spare time chatting with players, darts fans, and watching darts in person or on TV.  It’s great stuff being able to combine my love of Darts and my technical and writing abilities.

Here’s an article I wrote after attending a press event in London where I got to chat with Barry Hearn, Dave Gorman (the comedian and writer), and even GOT TO PLAY PHIL ‘the power’ TAYLOR! Oh yes!

Who knows where it will end up!?
