A mass darts competition hosted at GrandWest this past weekend, saw the winner walking away with a ticket to the world cup.

Professional darts player Devon Petersen from Mitchell’s Plain hosted the knockout competition which featured 180 players from around the country.

A total of 3000 people attended the event over the weekend.

The players were a mix of SA’s best professional and amateur enthusiasts who came together to battle it out from Friday to Sunday.

The winner was Deon Oliver, originally from Mitchell’s Plain.

He travelled from Port Elizabeth, where he now lives, to compete alongside the other hopefuls.

Oliver walked off with prizes worth R80 000. He now joins the SA team for the dart world cup in June.
