While applications for the second Last Man Standing event have closed, there is still the opportunity for schools to compete for R5000.

Devon Petersen, Africa’s only professional darts player, has established a new leg of the competition that encourages the sport among the youth.

“There is no skill level needed for the school teams. It is just an opportunity to earn R5000 for your school,” says Petersen.

“We want to get schools to enter a team of four learners and a teacher, with the top scorers and the top four schools of the group round playing on stage on the Sunday. The top school then wins R5000.”

School entries are free and entries for school teams close this Thursday (15 March).

The Last Man Standing Darts competition will take place at GrandWest from Friday 16 to Sunday 18 March, where the winner will walk away with a massive R30 000 in cash.

The doors open at 12:00 on the Friday, and a weekend pass to watch the competition costs R120.

This is the second competition presented by Petersen.

Last year’s winner, Deon Oliver, was born and raised in Mitchell’s Plain and now resides in Port Elizabeth.

Oliver was among the hundreds of others who travelled to the Cape to compete for the crown last year.

The competition is sponsored in part by Heart FM, Sun International GrandWest, Pixo, AllMySports SA and Unicorn and endorsed by the South African Darts Association.

More than R100 000 in prize money will be up for grabs.V For more information visit the Last Man Standing page on Facebook. To enter a school team, email nsldarts@gmail.com.
