Two ‘Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles 9 Dart Challenge’ competitions will take place each day across the loadspace of a Volkswagen Crafter dropside, with the dartboard positioned on the vehicle’s bulkhead and the player’s oche (toe line) by the tailgate.

To recreate the atmosphere of a championship darts match, a professional darts referee will be on hand, and for the first two days of the show, Sky Sports’ John McDonald will be the official host and caller.

On the last day of the show, two other celebrity darts players will be attending and playing the winners of that day’s competitions. They are Arron Monk, the 2011 Under 21 World Champion ( and Australian Paul ‘The Asset’ Nicholson (
