Super Series Opportunity for Seniors

TIMES can barely have ever been better for darts players playing or plying their trade outside of the PDC’s top 128. The latest edition to the opportunities available boosts chances for those over 50.

The MODUS Super Series and World Seniors Darts Tour (WSDT) have announced a partnership that will see 2023 WSDT members given the opportunity to play in the MODUS Super Series.

The initial deal centres around weeks nine, 10 and 11 of Stage Two, and will give players the chance to play at the MODUS Live Lounge and win the £20,000 Champions prize on offer at the conclusion of each stage.

This demographic is particularly close to the heart of our Darts World coach who commented:

“Many superb players over 50 missed out on top-flight careers and other opportunities in darts’ worst times. It’s brilliant to see them showing what they can do on bigger and better stages”

The 16-time World Champion Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor recently attended the MODUS Super Series as a guest and expressed his positiveness at how amazing the set-up is and how it has revolutionised the semi-professional and amateur game. Taylor also implied that he could accept an invite to the MODUS Super Series in 2023 having been invited by MODUS.

Reigning World Seniors Darts World Champion and Seniors World Matchplay Champion Robert Thornton is one of many WSDT members that regular viewers will be used to seeing in the MODUS Super Series.

Martin Adams, Richie Howson, Andy Hamilton, Dave Prins, Lisa Ashton, Deta Hedman and local Portsmouth man Andy Jenkins have also all previously participated, among a host of other over 50s.

The field for the three weeks of action will be compiled as a mixture of invitations and via the WSDT Order or Merit at the conclusion of the first weekend of 2023 World Seniors Darts Championship Qualifiers in Reading on the 12th and 13th of November. Full details will be announced in the coming weeks.

Billy Lovell, MODUS Super Series Head of Operations, said: “Despite being just a year old, the World Seniors Darts Tour has been a revelation. The demand from fans to see a mixture of their heroes from yesteryear take on the best dart players over the age of 50 has been fantastic.

“The standard on the WSDT has been exceptional and we’re delighted many of those players have already brought their games here to Portsmouth – including Chris Mason reaching the finals of Series One’s Champions Week and Jim McEwan already booking his Champions Week spot in Series Two. We hope this partnership will unearth even more potential in the over 50s game.”

Jason Francis, World Seniors Darts Tour Director, said: “From day one we’ve been passionate about providing our members with the best darting opportunities, which for many has extended careers beyond expectations.

“Our first year was fantastic, but we won’t ever stand still and we’re extremely thankful to the MODUS Super Series for providing a platform for our members to gain valuable TV exposure.”
