The Darts World Matchplay from the Blackpool Winter Gardens starts on July 16th and runs through to the 24th. The top stars in the world will be stepping up to the oche at the famous tournament, which has, by and large, been dominated by Phil Taylor since its inception.
Taylor has won 15 of the 22 editions that have been played and he has a seven year title sequence snapped last year when Michael van Gerwen went on to claim the title.
That was Van Gerwen’s first World Matchplay title and with him being the dominant force now in darts, will the Dutchman be on top again this year in Blackpool, or will Taylor find a way to respond in the event which he loves so much? The other big names in the mix are former winner James Wade, Adrian Lewis and Gardy Anderson.
Who will get their hands on the title in what is the 23rd edition of the famous darts event?
