The players signed up to play at the Peterborough Masters Darts 2016 evening at The Cresset on Thursday 10th November 2016 are as follows:

Scott Waites – an English darts player who plays in tournaments organised by the British Darts Organisation. Waites is a two time BDO World Darts Champion having won the 2013 tournament and 2016 tournament. He is also a former Winmau World Masters champion, WDF World Cup singles’ champion, Zuiderduin Masters champion, and the only BDO representative to ever win the Professional Darts Corporation Grand Slam of Darts.

Steve Beaton – is an English professional darts player for the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC). He won the British Darts Organisation (BDO) version of the World Professional Darts Championship in 1996. Beaton made his World Championship debut in 1992, at a time when the world darts championship was still a unified tournament. He lost in the first round to Chris Johns, but he was encouraged by his performance in the same tournament in 1993 when he achieved a huge upset win over the tournament favourite and former world champion, Dennis Priestley, and he also beat another former world champion in Bob Anderson, before losing in the semi-final to Alan Warriner. He became a full-time professional later in 1993 at a time after the split, which saw the WDC players banned from all BDO tournaments – and Beaton went on to win the prestigious Winmau World Masters, beating Les Wallace in the final. When he defended his world title in 1997, Beaton was within the width of the Double 10 wire of reaching the final, but he lost to Marshall James in a tight semi-final match.

Kevin Painter – an English professional darts player who plays in Professional Darts Corporation tournaments, where he is known as “The Artist”. He is arguably most famous for finishing runner up to Phil Taylor in the 2004 PDC World Championship final, now widely credited as one of the greatest televised matches in the history of the game. He was also the winner of the Players Championship Finals in 2011.

Eric Bristow MBE – (“The Crafty Cockney”) is a former professional English darts player. He was ranked World No. 1 from 1980–81, 1983–85 and 1990, and won five World Championships and five World Masters titles. In the 1980s, Bristow’s skill and personality helped turn darts into a worldwide spectator sport. In 1993, Bristow was one of sixteen top players who broke away from the British Darts Organisation to form their own organisation, which became the Professional Darts Corporation. He retired from competitive darts in 2007 and now works as a commentator and pundit on Sky Sports’ darts coverage.

Keith Deller – an English darts player who won the Embassy World Professional Darts Championship in 1983. He was the first qualifier ever to win the championship and remains one of the youngest champions in history. For his world championship win, Deller used 18-gram spring-loaded darts, later banned for tournament play but now legal again. He no longer uses these darts. Deller is the manager of two-time PDC World Champion Adrian Lewis. Keith is also the reigning Norwich Charity Darts Masters 2015 Champion.

No big stage darts match play tournament would be without the following officials who will be the referee and MC on the night.

Russ Bray – a darts referee who works for the Professional Darts Corporation. He is considered by most to be the best darts referee in the world. He is also known as The Voice, due to his unique style of calling and his raspy voice.

Paul Booth – Paul has appeared as MC on Channel 5 for all the LIVE Boxing events this year, the only UK Boxing MC on terrestrial TV, and established himself as one of the UK’s top all round MC’s, involved in both radio and TV for over 20 years.

Quite simply not an event to be missed and early purchase of tickets is advised as this event is expected to be a sell-out. So don’t delay and purchase your tickets for the Peterborough Masters Darts Tournament 2016 today.  The Cresset box office here.
