A true national sporting treasure will be appearing in Copthorne when the Effingham Park Hotel hosts An Evening with Phil Taylor on Wednesday 10 October, where the legendary 16-times World Darts Champion (pictured) will be joined by his greatest rival Raymond Van Barneveld.

The pair will entertain the audience in the venue’s Millennium Suite, where guests will hear them reflect on Taylor’s incredible career and relive some of the famous battles between them.

Taylor is the UK’s most successful sportsman ever and his phenomenal success helped to catapult darts from a pub game to the international sporting spectacle it has become today.

Van Barneveld boasts five World Championship titles and has won several other major tournaments, including the Premier League and Grand Slam of Darts.

‘The Power’ and ‘Barney’ will, of course, be showcasing their skills on the stage, allowing guests to sample the unique atmosphere of a night at the darts – widely regarded as the best night out in professional sport.

The audience will be provided with opportunities to play against the greatest darts players of all time in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Taylor and Van Barneveld will then speak about a number of interesting topics, including their remarkable careers and behind the scenes insights into one of sport’s biggest success stories.

“I’m really looking forward to this event,” said Taylor, who retired from the sport following January’s World Championship final.

“This is what my retirement year is all about, visiting different places and meeting new people. It also gives me a chance to look back on my career, which I didn’t do during it because I was always looking to the next tournament.

“I’m can’t wait to meet the guests and share my story with them. It will be a really special evening and it will be great to be joined by Raymond.”

Various sponsorship and commercial partnership opportunities are available for this event, which provides the perfect opportunity to entertain, inspire and reward your valued clients, customers, colleagues or friends.

Title sponsorship of this event is also available in a package that includes dining with Taylor at the event.
