Michael van Gerwen was one dart away from a nine-darter before Michael Smith completed the achievement in the World Championship final
Following Michael Smith’s dramatic win at the World Darts Championship, we take a look ahead at all the darting action still to come in 2023.
After the Bahrain, Nordic and Cazoo Masters later this month, the weekly drama of the Premier League returns from 2 February and will conclude in London in May, all live on Sky Sports.
Josh Rock stunned Michael van Gerwen with a nine-darter at the Grand Slam of Darts before the Dutchman went on to win 10-8 in a classic
There could be some new faces in the competition this year after youngster Josh Rock’s hugely impressive end to 2022, with Germany’s Gabriel Clemens putting his hand up for a spot after an impressive run at the World Darts Championship.
The competition will also see Smith and Michael van Gerwen go head to head once again as their new rivalry continues to grow, with automatic qualifiers Gerwyn Price and Peter Wright hoping to put a stop the supremacy of the Michaels.
The World Matchplay then follows from July 15-12 in Blackpool, with both the men’s and women’s tournament, which will feature Fallon Sherrock and upcoming star Beau Greaves, from the Winter Gardens being shown live on Sky Sports.

Van Gerwen will be looking to defend his title at the Winter Gardens before heading to Leicester in October to keep hold of the World Grand Prix of Darts title, with stops at the New Zealand Darts Masters, New South Wales Darts Masters, and Jack’s World Series of Darts Finals in between.
