2021 Grand Slam of Darts

Post by Rogg » Thu Apr 08, 2021 1:22 pm

Bazza has been on the podcast. Summarised here, including the GSoD bit: https://www.skysports.com/darts/news/12 ... arry-hearn



“The Grand Slam was always supposed to be the two codes – the amateur code and the professional codes together,” PDC chairman Barry Hearn told The Darts Show Podcast.

“And I think it worked. I think it created a unique tournament. Clearly and unfortunately the amateur game has virtually folded.

“There are plans ahead to reinvent through the WDF and other organisations the amateur game. And we would support that if they acknowledge that they are the amateur game.

“We hope that we’ll see a Grand Slam with the leading amateurs in it as we did before, but selected on a different criteria. And we will be working with whoever decides that they want to put the time in to make the amateur game strong. We will be working with them and I hope we’ll be helpful with them as well.”

“This year’s version I’m sure will feature some top amateurs,” he said. “It’s a question of how they’re selected. We need to know who the top amateurs are. And to achieve that, we need to see results or some sort of criteria for selection.

“But the principle of the pick of the amateurs against the world’s best, I think it works.”

It has to happen. The only downside is that it might kill Randall off.

Got tbh I think it would be hilarious if Adams, Hankey, O'Shea, Fitton, Mcnoloyalty were in the Slam imagine what it would do for the forum.
