    Darts

    Perhaps not the most athletic 'sport' but it does make for good TV viewing and the 2018 World Matchplay tournament has just drawn to a close.

    Here is the final, which was of a particularly high standard this year ...

    Oh yes, they're all fatties but the skill level is nonetheless remarkable.

    A great sport-I haven't played it for years and you can enjoy it without working up a sweat. Vey good for hand and eye co-ordination and in my opinion it ranks as a martial art, a specifically English one at that.

    It's the carnival atmosphere I enjoy as much as the darts TBQH.

    18.000 is a terrific attendance, with this year's final breaking the previous record!

    The World Darts Grand Prix is now underway!

    Some details about the competition ...

    The World Grand Prix is a PDC darts tournament held in Dublin each October. Its original venue was the Casino Rooms in Rochester, Kent in 1998 and 1999, and then for one year only in 2000 at the Crosbie Cedars Hotel in Rosslare, County Wexford. In 2001, the tournament moved further north to the Citywest in Dublin. In 2009, the tournament moved from the Reception Hall at the main Citywest Hotel to the newly completed bigger venue on site, the Citywest Hotel Convention Centre. In 2012, the tournament moved back to the Reception Hall for that year, before returning to the Convention Centre in 2013. When the World Grand Prix was founded in 1998, it replaced the earlier World Pairs tournament which ran from 1995 to 1997.

    The World Grand Prix was sponsored by bookmakers Paddy Power from 2001 to 2003, before Sky Bet took over in 2004. The subsidiary Sky Poker was the tournament's sponsor in 2008. In 2010, online gambling company Bodog became the event's title sponsor, while PartyPoker.com took over as sponsor in 2011. In 2016, Unibet took over as sponsor.

    Although he has dominated the event with eleven title wins, Phil Taylor has been knocked out of the World Grand Prix five times in the first round. In 2001, he lost 2–1 to qualifier Kevin Painter, in 2004 by 2–0 in sets to Andy Callaby, in 2007 by 2–0 in sets to Adrian Gray, in 2015 by 2–0 in sets to Vincent van der Voort and in 2016 by 2–1 to Steve West.

    The current champion is Michael van Gerwen of the Netherlands, who defeated Scotland's Peter Wright 5–2 in the final on 6 October 2018 for his fourth World Grand Prix title.
