If you follow darts, you’ll know the PDC Premier League is underway. If you don’t follow it, it’s ten of the biggest names in darts competing in matches held around the U.K- and last Thursday night, it was the turn of the Odyssey Arena in Belfast!
I’d never been to the darts before, but as Barry is a big fan, it would be on in the house from time to time so I generally follow what’s going on. So for Valentines Day I decided to buy him a very romantic set of tickets!
Before we headed I thought it would be quite rowdy but when we got there, the atmosphere was just electric. Everyone was standing up cheering, and really getting behind the players, in particular darts ‘legends’ Raymond van Barneveld, Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor and Michael van Gerwen.
It was very exciting to see the action live and I’m really glad I went along! There was a good party atmosphere, with lots of fancy dress costumes on show! It was Week 4 and there were wins for Dave Chisnall, Gary Anderson and Raymond van Barneveld, as well as draws for van Gerwen/Lewis and Taylor/Wright.
I don’t think you need to be a massive darts fan to enjoy the night. It’s great craic and we said we’d make it a Valentines tradition! Now I just can’t get ‘Chase the Sun’ out of my head…
