The Guru’s back to defend his crown

2022 Champion Australian Raymond ‘Guru’ Smith will return to Moama to defend his crown.

Raymond has been in top form including a victorious sojourn to the UK earlier this year and is sure to be one of the favourites of this years event.

World Darts Federation current World Champion Neil Duff (Northern Ireland) will make a welcome return to the Moama after losing out at the semi-final stage in 2022 to Australia’s own Smith.

Andy Baetens (Belgium), the current Number one WDF Ranked player will be looking to add the Australian Darts Open to his growing list of titles as he ventures to Moama for the first time.

New Zealand number one and 2022 finalist Haupai Puha is hoping to go that one step further than 2022 and will be joined by an improving compatriot Jonny Tata.

South Australian Danny Porter has been in scintillating form and will be joined by fellow South Australian, former Pacific Masters and World Dart Trophy winner Peter Machin – both players are expected to stake their claim to the coveted title
that is now in its third year and offers $50,000 in prize money.

The Women’s Field is looking extremely strong this year with 2019 Australian Darts Women’s Open Champion and four times World Champion Lisa Ashton returning once more to ply her wares on the oche along with Netherland’s Aileen de Graaf.
