Josh’s Dartistry Darts Podcast – Grand Slam preview with Polly James


The Grand Slam of Darts gets underway in Wolverhampton this weekend, and to celebrate, we have a bonus episode featuring an interview with Radio X DJ Polly James – the newest addition to the Sky Sports Darts team.

Jose de Sousa will be defending his crown at the Aldersley Leisure Village from November 13-21, and ‘The Special One’ is one of four former winners featuring in the 32-player field, with Michael van Gerwen and Gerwyn Price bidding to add to their Grand Slam hauls.

There’s also the return of Raymond van Barneveld, making his first appearance in front of the Sky Sports cameras since coming out of retirement, while Fallon Sherrock and Lisa Ashton are flying the flag for the women’s game, taking on Peter Wright and Van Gerwen respectively in their opening games.

Polly will be on interview duty for Sky Sports during the tournament, and we caught up with her to discuss her love of the sport, her journey into the darting media, and most importantly, her Grand Slam of Darts predictions!

The last 12 months have been a glorious period for Welsh darts, with Gerwyn Price becoming world champion and world No 1, Jonny Clayton winning four major titles in 2021, while the pair also led Wales to World Cup glory last November.

Polly believes the coveted Eric Bristow Trophy will be heading back to Wales this year, but who will it be? All we can guarantee is high-quality darting drama over the next nine days, so sit back, relax, and enjoy the arrows!
