Article: Nifty Fifty for Peter “Snakebite” Wright

Nifty Fifty for Peter “Snakebite” Wright

Peter Wright turned 50 this week just after achieving his lifelong dream in winning the title of World Champion so to celebrate, we asked Peter about his visions for the future because that is where the charismatic Snakebite is always looking. Peter said “I might have just turned 50 but I’m as hungry as I’ve ever been and desperate to win another major title and another World Championship.” Wright has performed brilliantly since taking on the mantle of World Champion, having some fantastic games with some monstrous 110+ averages on the Pro Tour and winning the PDC Masters in February. Peter’s 50th birthday was celebrated at home with his close family and friends, showing how connected Peter is with the people that are close to him and supported him during his rise to success. We asked his wife Jo what it’s like being married to World Champion and she said “It’s no different after his win, Peter’s energy is just the same as when he was 21! He’s still as keen as ever to keep playing darts, winning matches and lifting titles – but we do have to be mindful that he’s now turned 50 but he’ll keep going for as long as he can”. Peter faces Michael Smith tonight in his Premier League Week 6 fixture in Liverpool, but before that he is making a special appearance at the Liverpool Junior Darts Academy where he is looking to spread his passion for the game to the next generation. Peter said “I don’t get much of a chance to spend time with the next generation, owing to how incredibly busy our schedule is, but it goes without doubt that all players, MvG and Gezzy included that all of us have a vested interest in the grass roots of the game developing the next level. So, to be part of the development like this is a privilege and I’m looking forward to chatting to everyone in Liverpool” With recent news of upcoming European Tours 3 & 4 being cancelled there will be some changes to the usual PDC schedule and we’ll keep you up to date with the alterations. Peter will be playing both the Premier League tonight and at the Players Championships this weekend in Barnsley, once again tussling with the best in the World to add more titles to his collection.
