DARTS legend Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor praised the ‘world-class’ facilities when he opened the new Darts Zones at Rileys Chester
Then the 15-time World Champion teamed up with former Ladies’ World Champion, Ellesmere Port’s very own Anastasia Dobromyslova to wow a crowd of more than 200 darts fans with a series of exhibition matches.
Rileys Darts Ambassador Taylor was at the club to launch the new six-lane playing area, which is fitted with championship-quality boards, hi-tech electronic scoring and specially-focused lighting.
He said: “The sport of darts is on the up and up. More people every week are starting to play our game.
“It will do wonders for darts to have a top operator like Rileys bring their club expertise to the development of the game across the country. There will be real benefits for players at all levels.
“It is important for darts players young and old to have somewhere like this with world class facilities.”
Anastasia, who is also a Rileys Darts Ambassador, added: “Everyone plays better when they are in nice surroundings.
“The Rileys clubs generate a great atmosphere for darts players, their friends and families.”
