Michael van Gerwen, Raymond van Barneveld and Kim Huybrechts will be sponsoring a series of young Dutch and Belgian players aiming to earn their spots in the Junior European Championships, in a special qualifying event held in June.
The 2016 Junior Darts Corporation season will feature the £6,000 Junior European Championship, which is being held from September 16-18 at Pontins, Brean Sands. Four places for this competition will be on offer at the special qualifying event at the Evenementenhal in Venray, on Saturday 11th June.
There will be two spots open for Dutch players and two spots available for Belgian players, in addition to a £5,000 prize fund. Two promising Dutch talents, Justin van Tergouw and Maikel Verberk, have both accepted invitations to compete in the Junior European Championships.
Van Tergouw won the World-Youth Masters last year, whilst he also tasted success on home soil, winning the Finder Darts Masters in December. Van Tergouw, who turns 16 today, also tasted victory at last weekend’s German Open, securing victory with a magnificent 147 finish.
