Mark Webster, the BDO World Champion in 2008, will be appearing at NC Paints & Decor in Ashline, Kilrush Road, Ennis on Friday October 3.
Customers, staff and members of the public will be invited to take on the popular Welshman in a special challenge in which Webster will be given six darts to better his opponent’s score with nine.
The event is one of a number organised by leading trade paint manufacturer Leyland Paints which will see Webster visit a number of their key stockists around the UK and Ireland.
“It’s always a very enjoyable experience to take on members of the public and the Leyland Paints Nine Dart Challenge is a fantastic format,” said Webster, who reached the quarter-finals of the PDC World Championship last Christmas.
“Whenever we do these events we always get some excellent players attend and I’m sure that will be no different in Ennis.”
Webster, who will be appearing at NC Paints & Decor between 10am and 2pm, forms part of an all-star darting Team-Leyland.
Current world champion Michael van Gerwen and world number four Simon Whitlock are also sponsored by Leyland Paints.
“We are delighted to be visiting Ireland,” said Vicky Jones, Leyland Paints’ stockist brand marketing manager.
“We are firmly at the heart of darts now and it’s fantastic to offer both members of the public and some of our key stockists the opportunity to go head-to-head with a former world darts champion.
“I’m sure it will be a fantastic day and Mark will have to be at his very best to see off the challenge of his opponents on the day.”
