The professional darts corporation’s (PDC) annual darts competition, the grand slam of darts takes place later this week, with the final taking place on the 17th.
The Grand Slam is an invitational tournament for players who have reached major finals and semi-finals, or been the top of their countries’ respective rankings. The competition also features some of the best players from the British Darts Organisation, the PDC’s rivals. There is a certain degree of prestige attached to qualifying for the tournament, and even more for entrants who qualify multiple times.
The competition takes place each November at the Wolverhampton Civic. If you’re looking for a free bet for the competition these are the best free bets for darts betting.
