Van Barneveld set for Pro Tour return!

Barney Pro Tour

Raymond van Barneveld will make his return to the Pro Tour circuit next week, as the Players Championship heads to Dublin ahead of the Unibet World Grand Prix.

The two £75,000 events- taking place on September 28th-29th, form the penultimate double-header of the year’s Players Championship season, as a combination of PDC Tour Card Holders and PDPA Associate Members compete at the Citywest Hotel.

Only six Tour Card holders will be absent from the weekend’s double-header, with a large number of the field competing in the World Grand Prix, which begins on Sunday September 30th.

However, five-time world champion Van Barneveld will be making his first Players Championship appearance since April as he prepares for a decisive second half of the season.

The legendary Dutchman won his fourth World Cup of Darts title along with Michael van Gerwen back in June, whilst he’s also reached the final of the Unibet Masters and Auckland Masters, where he was beaten by ‘The Green Machine’ on both occasions. However, he has a sizeable amount of prize money to defend over the coming months.

Speaking to Live Darts TV at the recent Target Darts Launch, Van Barneveld said: “I did not make it to the Champions League of Darts and I will miss the European Championship as I haven’t got enough points.”

“I will play the Pro Tour weekend in Barnsley and the Pro Tour weekend in Ireland, so I’ve got four days to try and get in the Players Championship Finals. Otherwise I will play the Grand Slam of Darts, the World Championship and the World Grand Prix of course, which is good enough for me,” the 51-year-old added.

Scott Darbyshire, Sven Groen, Royden Lam, Ronnie Baxter and Corey Cadby will all be skipping Players Championship 19 & 20, with Cadby’s ongoing visa issues preventing him from competing in PDC ranking events. Meanwhile, Robbie Green also misses out as he continues his recovery from knee surgery.

Both events will be streamed live through PDCTV-HD with streaming for all subscribers worldwide. Play in Friday’s Players Championship 19 will commence at 12pm, with Saturday’s Players Championship 20 beginning at the later time of 1pm.
