Pro Practice Leagues with Red Dragon Darts
The Let’s Play Knockout Darts “Pro Practice Leagues” are now underway in Stoke on Trent & Birmingham. Supported by two excellent venues and now Red Dragon Darts. This interesting concept has been operating for the last 2 years and was initially set up to provide new PDC professional Mark`Mile High’ Hylton regular daytime practice. The idea has worked superbly and the scheme gone from strength to strength. Up to 16 players per league play PDC format best of 11 darts in the high quality facilities offered by ; Players Snooker & Pool Lounge in Newcastle Under Lyme & The Red Lion , Erdington Birmingham.
Each player plays the others at least twice and scores and statistics are recorded and assistance offered where appropriate. Many players both established an up and coming have benefitted from their participation and improved substantially or simply improved at the format required for bread and butter in the PDC!
Current players include Team Red Dragon members Ian “Diamond” White & Mark “Mile High” Hylton as well as Nick “Hero” Fullwell. Up and coming young players are encouraged to come and develop their games and include Ryan “The Rhino” Herrington, Luis “The Flamethower” Barbaran & Matt “The Lad” Gallett.
Those who have used the sessions to develop and then move into professional darts include Adam Smith Neale, Andy “Slugger” Brown and recent Q School dark horse Gareth Pass.
The leagues also concentrate on an informal positive atmosphere where all players regardless of current level are encouraged to gain the maximium from the session and really enjoy playing top quality darts. With the support of Red Dragon it is hoped that we can assist many more players to develop and treat their approach in an organized and professional manner.
