THE final field for the SINGHA Beer Grand Slam of Darts has been confirmed, and Terry has qualified through winning a pro tour event this year.
The 32-player tournament will be held at the Wolverhampton Civic Hall from November 7-15, live on Sky Sports, and will be ranked on the PDC Order of Merit for the first time in 2015.
Play initially sees the 32 players split into eight groups of four players for the round-robin stage, which takes place across the opening four days before the top two players from each group progress to the knockout last 16. With no previously unqualified players reaching the final of the European Championship, the 32-player field has been confirmed, with Jelle Klaasen and Terry Jenkins confirmed in the final two places due to their Players Championship wins this year.
The top eight players in the PDC Order of Merit following the European Championship will be seeded for the tournament, and will be split across the eight groups for the round-robin stage. The remaining eight players who either reached a major final in the last year, won a European Tour event or Players Championship will be in pool two for the draw, with the PDC Qualifiers in pool three and the eight BDO representatives in pool four.
The SINGHA Beer Grand Slam of Darts draw will be made live on Birmingham’s Free Radio 80s Sports Phone-In at 6pm on Monday evening. Live coverage can be heard at http://www.freeradio.co.uk/football/.
