Simon Hall Head of Marketing for Red Dragon said "We^ve worked with the Parc Y Scarlet’s for a few years on their Scarlet’s Masters, but it was too great to get involved in a grass roots qualifier ahead of next Fridays event. We chose a format that everyone could enjoy and have more than one go at, to avoid players losing in round one”.
“Big thanks go to The Scarlet’s for supporting darts and the players that turned up. There’s no doubt that the Parc Y Scarlet’s has staked a very strong claim as South West Wales the best darting venue, and we look forward to working with them on more exciting events in the future”.
Ticket for Friday the 21st Scarlet’s Masters can be bought at £20.00 and the star studded line-up includes:
Simon Whitlock, Mark Webster, Phil Taylor, Raymond Van Barneveld, James Wade, Bobby George and legend Andy Fordham.
