The battle for qualifying places in the summer's showpiece event - the World Matchplay - hots up, with the weekend in Crawley being the penultimate weekend before the cut-off is made for Blackpool places.

The third European Tour event held from July 6-8 also counts towards the ProTour order of merit, from which the top 16 players outside of the world's top 16 will be invited to compete in Blackpool at the end of July.

An array of big names will take part on Saturday and Sunday, including reigning World Champion Adrian Lewis, Raymond van Barneveld and recent German Darts Championship runner-up Dave Chisnall.

Gary Anderson has now pulled out of the events as he looks to recover from an eye injury which also forced him to withdraw midway through his European Tour opener last weekend.

Phil Taylor has chosen to skip the events as he takes time out to prepare for the defence of his World Matchplay crown, while Raymond van Barneveld and Chris Mason join Anderson as last minute withdrawals from the original list of entries.

Ones to watch include consistent floor performers Justin Pipe and Wes Newton, along with young sensation James Hubbard who will be eyeing yet more scalps across the two events.

Ted Hankey returns to ProTour action, while the likes of Kim Huybrechts, Simon Whitlock, James Wade and Andy Hamilton will all look to gather momentum in the build-up to the big one in Blackpool. 

Both events are non-televised and will commence at 12pm, with the draw being made following the close of registration at 11am. All games will be the best of 11 legs and are not open to public entry.
