Kellett Back to Wigan; UK Open Qualifiers 4-6

Kellett Back to Wigan; UK Open Qualifiers 4-6

coral uk openTHE final three Coral UK Open Qualifiers for professional players will be held from Friday February 21- Sunday February 23, featuring over 200 players battling for places in next month’s Televised Finals in Minehead.  Stuart will be hoping for three good events, as every £ goes toward the main ranking, as well as he’ll be hoping for a good run to ensure he can comfortably make the Minehead finals.  £500-£750 will probably be enough, and Stuart has won £750 going into these last three qualifiers.

The weekend will see three tournaments, each worth £50,000, held at the Robin Park Tennis Centre in Wigan, with PDC Tour Card Holders joined by PDPA Associate Members in the field for each.

Following Sunday’s Qualifier Six, the leading 96 players (plus ties) from the Coral UK Open Order of Merit will qualify alongside the 32 Rileys Qualifiers to compete in the Coral UK Open Televised Finals at the Butlins Minehead Resort from March 7-9.

Entry lists are below for the three tournaments, which will each commence at 12pm and will be held across 32 boards in Wigan.  All games will be the best of 11 legs, with the leading 32 players from the PDC Order of Merit who have entered being exempt to the Last 128 stage, where they are drawn at random with one player per board.

Updates will be available throughout each event here at the PDC’s official website, www.pdc.tv, as well as through the PDC Live Scores Website,http://live.dartsdata.com, and on Twitter by following @PDCResults.
