PDC Invitational Fishing Championship

We are proud to have been Official Sponsors of the 3rd PDC Invitational Fishing Championship. This year’s match was held in Bedfordshire on September 7th, and saw stars from darts and snooker take on celebrities from the wider world of entertainment.

The excitement for us was seeing all of these famous faces competing to win The Wickman Cup. The eventual winner, eclipsing the talents of Dappy, Steve Davis OBE, Barry Hearn and Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor, was Steve Collett of Anglers’ Mail, who might just have had a bit more experience than some of the competitors!

There was a lot of press interest. If you’re a reader of OK magazine, don’t forget to look out for the photographs. The event will also be featured in the next issue of West Essex Life, Anglers Mail and Angling Times. For those of you who prefer your entertainment delivered by Sky Sports, footage from the event is currently in editing. A one hour show will be broadcast in the near future.

Although the day was terrific fun, there was a serious purpose behind the event. Monies raised have gone towards the Haven House Children’s Hospice and we are glad to have helped their cause in our own small way. We believe that next year’s event is already in the planning stages. If it’s anything like this year’s event, it’s definitely one to mark on your calendar.
