Phil Taylor & Martin Adams headline as world seniors matchplay announced.

The first ever World Seniors Matchplay is set to take place this year with Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor ready to launch another World Titled Event bid, after World Seniors Darts Tour have reached an agreement to create and stage the inaugural event. 

Planned for 2 and 3 July 2022 at the Bonus Arena, Hull, the tournament will see some of the legends of darts, including iconic 16-time World Champion Taylor and Multi World Champion Martin ’Wolfie’ Adams, compete for the title of The Jenningsbet World Seniors Darts Matchplay Champion. 

The field will be made up of a combination of ‘selected’ former professional World Senior Champions and decorated stars of the sport and qualifiers – with opportunities for any player over 50 to secure their place in the event through the Seniors Qualifying School. 

Taylor, who will make his comeback to the world of darts next month, said: “I lost my hunger four years ago but having seen the concept of the World Seniors Dart Tour this year I cannot wait to play this new event on the seniors tour.” 

Billy Lovell of WSDT said: “With Darts growing globally it makes sense to now explore more senior events, and we have done this with the Seniors Matchplay.” 

Advanced discussions have already taken place with major broadcasters. Further announcements will be made in due course. 

Tickets go on sale at 10am on Monday, 10 January from www.bonusarenahull.com.
