CAPE TOWN – Eight South African dart players will spend the weekend attempting to break the Guinness World Record for completing a score of 1 000 001 with the least number of darts.
The 2010 record of 1 000 001 points with 35 698 darts set in 46 hours was set in Omagh, in Ireland.
The event is endorsed by Darts South Africa and Western Cape Darts.
“The dart players have been selected for their consistency, skill and passion for the game,” says Elouise Matthys, the PR and Promotions Manager at GrandWest. “It is bound to be a nail-biting attempt, but we are confident that these players are ready to tackle this task.”
Teams of two players per session will face the challenge of whittling down the score from 1 000 001 to a closing score of zero and, hopefully, with 35 697 darts or less.
The Guinness World Record attempt starts at 16h00 on Friday and ends at 16h00 on Sunday, at the Atrium, GrandWest.
