Winmau are delighted to announce that New Zealand international Darren Herewini has extended his deal by 3 years, after enjoying a strong year on the New Zealand Darts Circuit. The New Zealand international has enjoyed a successful career having claimed 11 tournament wins, including the WDF World Cup Singles Title in 2019 where he beat Australian international Peter Machin 7-6 in the Final.
Darren more recently found a double of tournament wins in Motueka at the New Zealand Darts Council Nationals, winning the Men’s Singles Championships and the Mixed Pairs Event with partner Mary-Anne Teinaki.
Apocalypse defeated Ben Robb 6-3 in the Final to win the Singles Championship, whist defeating Brian & Jo Stead 4-3 in the Final of the Mixed Pairs competition along with Mary-Anne.
Herewini will return this week for the defence of his WDF World Cup Men’s Singles crown at the Granly Hockey Arena in Esbjerg: Denmark, after being named in the 4-man New Zealand team for the event that returns after a 4 year absence.
“I am delighted to continue my stay with Winmau, after signing back in 2020. I have enjoyed my darts this year, and I look forward to seeing what the future holds starting with the defence of my World Cup singles title.”
The 31-year-old tested himself last month against the sport’s best players, having qualified for the PDC New Zealand Darts Masters in Hamilton. The hometown hero fell to defeat in the opening round against Damon Heta but will have been happy with the opportunity to play in front of his home supporters on the PDC stage.
Winmau Marketing Director Simon Hall spoke on Darren’s new deal saying: “I am pleased Darren will continue his journey with us, after what has been a strong year for him back home. The sport continues to spread to a wider audience in New Zealand, and Darren is a strong reason for that.”
Apocalypse will open his WDF World Cup Men’s Singles campaign on Wednesday in Denmark, part of the New Zealand team that also features Ben Robb, Haupai Puha and Brian Corbett.
Herewini’s mixed pairs partner Mary-Anne Teinaki is named in the Women’s team that will compete along with Wendy Harper, Nicole Regnaud and Sharlene Maru-Habib.
