Performance Darts are very proud to announce as part of our ongoing commitment to grass roots darts, two new sponsorship deals for young players hoping to make their way in the darts world.
We will be helping them with their kit, from darts to flights and anything else they may need. Our training website, practice plans and the video analysis service offered by our sister company ,The Darts Performance Centre, will be made available to help guide these two youngsters to be the best they possibly can be on the oche.
So, let’s introduce them:
First up is Connor Scutt. Connor actually came for a video analysis session many months before any talk of sponsorship was discussed. This proved to us that he was serious about his game and open minded to new ideas. Connor sent us a fantastic email outlining his desire to be the best he can and also told us:
“I am an aspiring darts player currently on course to qualify for the PDC World Youth Championships in November. This year I’ve enjoyed some of the best results of my darts career, with the highlight reaching the last eight of Development Tour event eight.
That run included wins over World Youth champion Corey Cadby and BDO World Youth runner-up Killian Heffernen. I’ve also enjoyed tournament wins over Tour card holder Ryan Meikle, Challenge Tour leader Ritchie Edhouse as well as Steve Beaton and Bob Anderson in Exhibition format. “
Our second player is Joe Reid. We met Joe when he took part
in our design your own signature darts competition. Joe has helped us out with
some blogs and reviews so you may have come across him on Facebook and Twitter
as he has a very deep knowledge of all things darts.
Playing wise Joe told us:
“I play darts in and around Bedfordshire, representing my county at both youth and senior level. I started playing darts properly around 2013; I used to always throw the odd dart at home while the World Championships were on around Christmas, but it was around 6 years ago when I started to play all year round, and actively look to improve my game.
I started playing locally mid-2017, and after a couple of local league games, represented Bedfordshire at youth level for the first time. I started playing super league a month or so after my youth county debut, and after just over a year playing in that, I represented Bedfordshire at senior level for the first time. By the end of the season, I’d won 4 of my 6 games, achieving my highest stage average on the last game of the season, which resulted in winning the Division 4 Men’s B divisional highest average award. “
We wish both players every success and we are sure they will represent the values and ethos of Performance Darts Ltd as we support them on the next part of their darts journey.
