Players Championship 5&6 in Wigan
Another weekend on the tour for the Artist, and this Saturday and Sunday saw the PDC ProTour weekend in Wigan, with Kevin joining the other 127 elite darts players.
The Robin Park Tennis Centre hosted 128 players over two days, and in each competition as they competed for the £10,000 first prize and £50,000 in total prize money. The games are ‘behind closed doors’, with no public allowed, and are the real bread n butter of a professional darts player.
It may not be on TV, but the prize money on offer is high, and very important across the year!
Kevin starts the weekend seeded 16th.
Players Championship 5
Round 1: Andy Jenkins 6-3 Kevin Painter
Players Championship 6
Round 1: Matt Clark 6-3 Kevin Painter
A weekend Kevin will want to forget, with two disappointing first round loses. The only good news was Kev’s Ipswich Town won 2-1 against Doncaster.
