Dave Chisnell celebrates winning his darts match

The first week of the PDC Home Tour has been a dramatic one to say the least, with shocks galore coming each night.

The first to fall was reigning world champion Peter Wright, who was sent home (figuratively of course, they’re literally already at home) after defeat to Welshman Jamie Lewis, who finished as group winner.

Night 2 came and another giant was tamed. Gerwyn Price was knocked out by Luke Woodhouse, whose nine-darter helped him on his way to a 5-0 victory and a three-match clean-sweep.

Dave Chisnall would have been eager not to fall to a similar fate as the two big names before him, and he made no mistake, winning Group 3 comfortably.

Group 4 on Monday night was won by 20-year-old Geert Nentjes, before another shock arrived on Tuesday.

Number 106 ranked Nick Kenny stunned his group which contained World Youth Champion Luke Humphries, Joe Murnan and Devon Peterson, comfortably beating them all.

James Wade was the focus of attention on Wednesday night, but the World No8 was knocked out, Ryan Searle taking the top spot instead.

What’s to come in the PDC Home Tour?

On Thursday night, it’s time for Group 7 which contains Gabriel Clemens, Jelle Klaasen, Gavin Carlin and Ryan Meikle.

Group 8 step up to the oche on Friday and we’ll see Jonny Clayton, Richard North, David Pallett and Adam Hunt all face off.

The remaining groups of each night from 25 April through to 18 May are yet to be confirmed at the time of writing.

What are the Odds?

Gerwyn Price and Peter Wright were joint favourites to win going in to the tournament, but have both stumbled at the first hurdle,

German Gabriel Clemens is 5/4 to win Group 7 on Thursday night, ahead of Dutchman Jelle Klaasen at 7/4 in what is likely to be a very tight battle for top spot.

On to Group 8 where Welshman Jonny Clayton looks likely to progress through to the knockouts, priced at 5/4 favourite.

Where Can We Watch?

Each match will be broadcast live via video call on the PDC’s subscription TV channel, PDCTV.

The matches will be free to watch for all registered PDCTV users, regardless of whether you have a free membership or a paid membership.

To watch, viewers with a membership can tune in through the PDCTV website or through their official app.

Each match will be streamed so fans have the chance to watch every game from the opening legs to the final.

Growing up surrounded by sport, a career writing about it almost seemed inevitable. Firstly working for a professional football club before jumping into gaming has given me the chance to see the beautiful game from both sides.
