Darts on Dave: About the BDO World Trophy

More sport on Dave? Well, we’re not just throwing things at a wall and seeing what sticks. Although we literally are in this case.

Live Darts: BDO World Trophy 2016

Darts has changed a lot in recent years. Just look at the size of the board now. It's MASSIVE. No wait, its the tiny thing in the middle.

Remember darts? That thing that used to be on telly all the time in the 80s? And we're not talking about the glamorous 'Bullseye' with Jim Bowen. Well it's high time to marvel once again at this precision sport, so we're showcasing the British Darts Organisation's annual World Trophy event, taking place over the May Bank Holiday weekend (28th, 29th and 30th May) at the home of British darts, Lakeside Country Club.

There's a huge £150k prize fund at stake so competition will be fierce and very sharp and pointy with the BDO's biggest names, including reigning World Champions Scott Waites and Trina Gulliver MBE, along with the likes of Glen Durrant, Martin Adams, Scott Mitchell, Deta Hedman, Lisa Ashton, with wildcards for Jeff Smith, Andy Fordham and Ted Hankey.

Our live coverage will start at 12 midday on each day of the event finishing at 10pm - that's a whopping ten hours of arrows a day, maths fans - so you won't miss a moment of action. Let's face it, you're not going to be very productive this May Bank Holiday Weekend. Don't fight it.
