The legendary darts player, Phil Taylor, known as “the Power,” has announced that 2024 will be his final year on the World Senior Darts Tour. At the age of 63, Taylor has had an illustrious career, winning the world championship a record 16 times. Although he retired from the sport in 2018, he returned to competitive darts last year after making it to the final of the PDC World Championship.
Taylor expressed his love for performing and reminisced about the journey he’s had over the past 35 years. He stated that it’s time for him to step away from the tour and continue working hard to give fans what they want. Despite retiring from the tour, Taylor will remain a global ambassador for the World Senior Darts Tour.
The tour consists of 11 events, including the World Senior Darts Championship at the Circus Tavern in February. Taylor aims to go out on a high in his final year on tour and make it an enjoyable one. Billy Lovell of World Senior Darts Tour praised Taylor as one of the UK’s greatest sportspeople and expressed gratitude for his decision to come out of retirement at the beginning of the project.
