The World Seniors Darts Championship 2022 will take place at the Circus Tavern in Purfleet, Essex.
The venue last hosted darts back in 2019, staging the BDO World Masters. It’s arguably best known for being the home of the PDC World Darts Championship between 1994 and 2007.
The event is scheduled to happen between Thursday 3 and Sunday 6 February 2022.
Tavern to host tournament
The Circus Tavern has rich history when it comes to hosting high quality events.
As mentioned, the first 14 PDC World Darts Championships took place in Purfleet, culminating in arguably the greatest game of darts ever played, as Raymond van Barneveld beat Phil Taylor in a sudden death leg to win the 2007 title.
Once the Worlds moved to the Alexandra Palace, the Tavern hosted events such as:
- The League of Legends in 2008
- The Players Championship Finals in 2009 and 2010
Its last major event was the 2019 BDO World Masters.
