New Winmau BDO ranking tournament for Wolverhampton
Wolverhampton is to play host to a British Darts Organisation (BDO) ranking event in 2017, with a prize fund of several thousand pounds.
The BDO have awarded the points to WICS (Wolverhampton Indoor Community Sports) after a series of successful events at the popular venue, culminating in this year's Winmau BDO Wolverhampton Open and a British Disability Darts Association tournament.
Next year's Winmau BDO ranking event will attract the UK's top darts professionals, along with West Midlands amateurs hoping to win prize money. It will be staged over two days on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 July.
WICS Manager, Dharam Jagpal, commented: "This will be our most prestigious darts event to date and we're hoping to bring forward our plans for the new Winmau Darts Centre, currently being designed as part of a major update of the whole WICS complex".
Ian Flack, Winmau’s Sales and Marketing Director, added: “The award of BDO ranking points for the WICS is just reward for the amazing opportunities that Dharam and the team have provided for players, not just in the local area, but nationwide. This year was the 4th Winmau BDO Wolverhampton Open, and this event has grown in stature and has now qualified for BDO ranking points. The details for the 2017 edition of this tournament will be released shortly, but it includes a new identity and the addition of an extra day in an exciting modernisation of a well-established tournament!”
WICS is in Racecourse Road, Wolverhampton. Further information: 01902 420827, www.wics.org.uk and firstname.lastname@example.org
