Kellett Heads for Wigan, Germany and Bolton in Great Form!

Kellett Heads for Wigan, Germany and Bolton in Great Form!

Speedy Services UK OpenStuart ‘KO’ Kellett’s form and confidence continues to grow, as his performances in 2013 continues to impress many darts fans.  Darts is often as much in the head as the arm, and Stuart certainly now has the confidence to match his skill with the tungsten.

UK Open qualifying is now complete, with Stuart qualifying for the Bolton finals (on Sky Sports TV of course, if you wish to join Stuart’s team as a sponsor, get in touch with his management team here) in joint 19th spot.  Being well inside the top 32 means Stuart can relax on the opening night, as is rewarded by missing the very dangerous early rounds.

Stuart also, through his fantastic current 7th position in the pro tour order of merit (table below), qualifies automatically for the next European Tour event in Germany.  With £100,000 prize fund, and £20,000 first prize, it is a great position to be in, ensuring a minimum of £500 won for a round 1 appearance.  Stuart’s runner up spot in the previous Euro Tour event has cemented his position in several TV events, with more opportunities to show his game to old and new fans live on Sky Sports.

The draw for the European Darts Open in Germany in Düsseldorf on May 17-19th sees Stuart (seeded 22nd) take on the very experienced Dennis Smith, which should be a great game.

KO’s next darts event is back in Wigan this coming weekend, at the first Player Championships event of 2013.  The prize money has been raised by the PDC, and Stuart will be aiming for the new £10,000 first prize on offer.
