The World Seniors Darts Championship returns to The Circus Tavern in 2024, and you can follow the latest results and schedule of play here.

The third staging of the over-50s event sees 32 players competing for a £30,000 top prize at the iconic Circus Tavern in Purfleet – the former home of the PDC World Championship.

The tournament, which features a host of former World Champions, major title winners and qualifiers, will take place from February 15-18.

Robert Thornton, the number one seed, is bidding for a hat-trick of titles after going back-to-back in 2022 and 2023.

A star-studded field includes ten former World Champions, headed by 16-time World Champion Phil Taylor – making his final appearance at the Circus Tavern in his farewell year in televised competition.

Taylor is vying to claim his first seniors title, having finished runner-up in the 2022 World Seniors Matchplay and World Seniors Masters.

Three-time World Champions John Part, Martin Adams and Glen Durrant also feature, alongside 2015 BDO World Champion Scott Mitchell and 1983 World Champion Keith Deller.

Former WDF World Champion Neil Duff returns, alongside multiple Women’s World Champions Lisa Ashton and Trina Gulliver.

Richie Burnett, the 1995 BDO World Champion, is one of nine debutants in this year’s field, as well as former world finalist Andy Hamilton, former World Cup of Darts winner John Henderson, Canada’s Jim Long and Germany’s Manfred Bilderl.

Second seed Leonard Gates is targeting a fourth World Seniors title, while former PDC world finalists Kevin Painter and Mark Dudbridge return to the line-up alongside former Lakeside finalist Tony O’Shea and multiple major finalist Terry Jenkins.

Last year’s runner-up Richie Howson looks to a step further in his home event, while World Seniors Matchplay runner-up Jim McEwan makes his Circus Tavern debut.

All matches up to and including the Semi-Finals will be contested over the best of five sets, while the final is best of nine. The deciding set of any match must be won by two clear legs, until the score line reaches 5-5 – when the 11th leg will be sudden death.
