Some of the world’s best professional darts players will be on show at the inaugural Isle of Wight Christmas Classic on Friday 6 December.

The exciting event sees the return of top class darts action to Lower Hyde Holiday Park, Shanklin, which hosted the hugely successful Isle of Wight Pro Masters earlier this year.

Seven-time PDC major title winner James Wade and local youngster Keegan Brown, who both took part in the March event, will return to the venue for another night of quality sporting entertainment.

Joining them will be a trio of Dutch stars including world number two and Premier League Champion Michael van Gerwen, who has revealed his excitement at being part of the occasion.

“I am really looking forward to visiting the Isle of Wight and playing in the Christmas Classic,” said the 24-year-old.

“I have heard fantastic things about the tournament they held earlier in the year and I am looking forward to putting a show on for the fantastic crowd.

“The line-up is brilliant and very competitive so I’m sure it will be a quality event and a lot of fun too.”

The all-star line-up is completed by five-time World Champion Raymond van Barneveld and his World Cup winning team-mate Co Stompe.
