Lots of live darts coming up on terrestrial tv over the next few weekends

19/20 October - Champions League of Darts on the BBC
25-27 October - European Championship on ITV4
1-3 November -  World Series Finals on ITV4

We then have the Grand Slam on Sky starting the following weekend.

Cheers for the heads up. Presume you meant November for the World Series Finals.

I often work on Sunday evenings in bars - which is annoying because loads of our games are on 4:30pm on Sunday over the next month - and quite often the final of darts tournaments is on a Sunday and without Sky Sports I can't record the final to watch back when I get home- which often means I watch most of the tournaments then miss who actually wins it. At least I'll be able to record the BBC and ITV offerings.
Justice for Anne Williams. Justice for the 96. Justice for the Survivors.

Champions league of darts - anyone knows the format? Anderson lost two games yesterday but still is on this afternoon v MVG. Strange

Anderson is struggling like mad. Has for months. Wonder if his back is fucked.

Maybe just poor run of form? With so many young dangerous players emerging lately its not easy I imagine. And Garry is geting on a bit. I see Klaasen droping from number 8 to 40 in space of couple years. Anderson has made his bed with the S** advert anyway, dont like like him anymore.

Looking at the stats, didn't seem like Anderson played that bad yesterday actually. Had a 97 and 99 average in his games.

3 clear darts at D12 for Wright. Simply cannot wish for a better opportunity to beat Van Gerwen. When he fucked that up you knew Van Gerwen would gain strength.

When he laughed off the first two missed darts is where it went in my opinion.

Van Gerwen said so there, he said Wright looked nervous after the first couple didn't land.

What's wrong with Lewis. He looked disheveled against Whitlock for the couple of minutes I saw it.

Lewis has been gone for ages and Iím not sure why.  Heís probably up there with MVG for natural talent so maybe he has something going on in his personal life or maybe his head has just gone.  Apparently itís now over two years since he reached a major quarter final so expect his ranking to drop significantly next year.

Crazy that. Wasn't really a fan of his but even Whitlock looked uncomfortable with the ease in which he won.

Most of the big guns usually have huge drop offs in form before the World's.

Gerwyn Price v Gary Anderson the re-match is on Saturday.  They have only met once in a World Series event since the infamous final at the Grand slam last year so it will be well worth a watch.
