Winmau today proudly announces a 3 year sponsorship deal with Dart Players Australia which will see all DPA events played on the class leading Blade 5 dartboard.
The partnership will also see Winmau named as title sponsors for the DPA’s tour events; DPA Australian Pro Tour and DPA Challenge Tour.
Formed in 2000, the DPA is an Australian darts organisation affiliated to the PDC, organising the DPA circuit and DPA’s Oceanic Master. The DPA Pro Tour provides month events throughout Australia, with a qualification spot to the top ranked player in to the PDC World Championships, as well as opportunities for qualifying spots in the PDC’s Oceanic World Series of Darts events.
Ian Flack, Winmau Sales and Marketing Director said “Australia has been a hot-bed for darting talent for many years and we’ve been honoured to work with some of their top talent over the years - including Australian icon Simon Whitlock and more recently Rhys Mathewson”
“We now can’t wait to get started with our new partnership with the DPA and the great events that they provide all over Australia. 2019 has been another stand-out year for the organisation and we’re thrilled to be part of their journey as the Australian dart scene continues to grow”
Rob Denny, Chief Executive of DPA, stated “Having the backing of Winmau is a very proud moment for us here at the DPA. We’re always looking at providing the most professional setting and equipment for our players, and there is no doubt that this partnership will further those ends”
“2019 was a fantastic year for us, especially with Damon Heta’s success at the Brisbane Darts Masters, showing that our top players can really challenge on the global stage. We’re determined to push to ourselves to the next level in 2020 and having Winmau by our side we’re as confident as ever for more success”
