PDC Grand Slam of Darts to feature 32 of the world's top players
Date Posted: 29/07/11
Some of the best darts players in the world will come together for a Champions League-style tournament later this year.
Taking place at Wolverhampton's Civic Hall between Saturday November 12th and Sunday November 20th, the PDC Grand Slam of Darts will see competitors placed into eight groups of four with the top two from each pool going through to a knockout stage.
Those booking Birmingham hotels will be able to see Scott Waites attempt to defend his title in front of the Sky Sports cameras.
Players qualify for the event through their performances over a two-year period in other PDC championships.
Furthermore, places are also guaranteed for those who make the semi-finals of the Lakeside Championship, or by winning the Sky Wildcard Qualifier.
Among the players who have made it through so far include Raymond van Barneveld, Phil Taylor and Mark Webster.
Last year, Scott Waites defeated James Wade in the final, with Taylor beating Waites in 2009's showpiece.
