An Evening of Darts
Devon Petersen


Fancy your chances at beating a darts Pro? Then why not dust off the old arrows, get your favourite darts shirt out of the wardrobe, buy yourself a ticket and mosey on down to the Commy Center in Burtonwood on Friday the 3rd of September for the below event?

The night is a fund raising event in aid of our very own, National Championship winning CRICKETTES Village Morris Dancing Troupes, the event will bring in much needed finances to help the group continue in their winning ways after 18 months of lockdowns, which stopped all of their fund raising activities normally carried out over a competitive year, so your support would be very much appreciated.

There will also be a signed and fully framed Raymond Van Barneveld shirt up for auction along with a raffle and food available to purchase during the evening.

MC for the evening will be a Mr Mark Dean and apparently all those darts fanatics in the know, know him.

VIP tickets will allow you early entrance to the event, plus a selfie with Devon and the chance to be first up on stage to take him on. All details regarding the event plus contacts are on the poster below. 65 tickets have already been sold at the time of writing, so don’t delay if you’re up for a challenge, give either Andrea or Chelle a call and get those tickets booked.

About Devon:

The eccentric Devon Petersen, Dubbed The African Warrior, has hit the heart of every darts fan whilst putting a smile on everyone’s face with his now famous walk-on and dance routine to Shakira’s “Waka Waka (This time for Africa)”.

Devon Petersen (born 4 June 1986) is the only African professional darts player in the world. He was born in Mitchell’s Plain Cape Town where he discovered his talents at a young age.

The dream was always to become a Professional sportsperson which his sports crazy family had a huge influence on, and the sport he chose just so happened to be darts.

His talents were identified by all within the South African ranks, being the youngest player to be selected and play for the Western Province and South African men’s team.  This performance is due to Devon’s discipline and dedication to practicing 4 hours a day with different practice regimes to increase accuracy and focus.

The rise of Devon Petersen could not be contained, breaking records and achieving all non professional accolades in just 5 years of playing. The move to the Professional Darts Corporation was a formality after achieving honours in all possible events available to him. He qualified for the PDC World Championship on three occasions with his best result coming in 2014 when he reached the last 16. Devon Petersen has since made a permanent move to reside in United Kingdom to pursue the goal of becoming the champion of the world.

Mr Secretary.
