SOME of the biggest names is professional darts are set to compete in a tournament at the Metrodome.
World champions Raymond van Barneveld and Dennis Priestley will join seven-time PDC winner James Wade, reigning European Champion Simon Whitlock and reigning World Grand Prix Champion Michael van Gerwen.
The line-up is completed by Belgian ace Kim Huybrechts and two more Yorkshire men - Dean Winstanley, who has been a finalist at both the World Championship and World Masters, and Huddersfield’s James Wilson.
Last year's Grand Slam of Darts winner van Barneveld is excited at the prospect of appearing in front of a big Barnsley crowd.
He said: “It's a fantastic line-up and it will be great to play in front the fans there. We play Pro Tour events at the Metrodome but they're behind closed doors so it's brilliant to be able to play in front of a crowd.
“I have met a few people when I’ve been in Barnsley and I know that they're passionate about darts. The Sheffield Premier League is one of my favourites in terms of the crowd so I’m really looking forward to this event.
“A few of the players will be aiming for local pride but we're all very competitive and will be out to win, which makes for a great show.”
The players have been assembled for the inaugural ‘Over The Top’ event on September 27.
