Eight excellent dart players will spend the weekend of 23 to 25 February 2018 attempting to break the Guinness World Record for completing a score of 1 000 001 with the least number of darts. The players will attempt to break the 2010 record of 1 000 001 points with 35 698 darts set in 46 hours. That record was set at the Weigh Inn Bar in Omagh, one of Ireland’s top dart venues for dart competitions.
“The dart players have been selected for their consistency, skill and passion for the game,” says Elouise Matthys, the PR and Promotions Manager at GrandWest. “It is bound to be a nail-biting attempt, but we are confident that these players are ready to tackle this immense task.”
Teams of two players per session will face the challenge of whittling down the score from 1 000 001 to a closing score of zero and, hopefully, with 35 697 darts or less.
“Come and support our dart players, entry is free,” says Matthys. “They will need the encouragement to keep their enthusiasm and determination high. It would be fantastic if they are successful in setting a new world record at GrandWest.”
The Guinness World Record attempt will be held from 16h00 on Friday, 23 February 2018 to 16h00 on Sunday, 25 February 2018 at the Atrium, GrandWest. The event is free of charge and endorsed by Darts South Africa and Western Cape Darts. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Wesley on 078 893 2345.
