Elite 1

DETERMINATION. BOLDNESS. ASSURANCE. BRAVERY. ENERGY. COURAGE. PERSISTENCE. HEART. MOTIVATION. PASSION. DRIVE. DEDICATION.

YOU ARE THE FUTURE.

We pulled together the Elite 1 programme so that we could discover the next generation of pro darts players, and work with the best of the best youth players to help them, alongside their management, to develop their talents to tour card level.

As part of Elite 1, our youth players will receive mentoring from BDO legend - Darryl Fitton. They will have access to the best Target products and we will work with them to help refine their set-up to ensure they get the best out of their equipment, and to guarantee that their darts work for each individual's unique throw.

Could you be the future of darts?

The talented teenager from Chester is one of darts brightest young prospects. In 2019, the then 16-year-old threw a 9-darter during the PDC Development Tour, making him the youngest player in history to throw a perfect leg at a PDC event.

"I am delighted to sign for Elite 1, to be a part of a team that has produced World Youth Champions feels special." - James Beeton.
