As a company we’re delighted to be able to support a number of local activities, especially when it’s for members of the Buy As You View family. That’s why we were really pleased to donate the prize money for the upcoming Llanharry Dart Opens, hosted by our very own Jamie Meredith.
Part of the furniture, Jamie’s worked for Buy As You View for the last 17 years. He’s one of the key faces at the company and the first person you meet, as he works as Security on our Front Desk. In his spare time, Jamie is a keen darts player and has been running singles tournaments at local clubs throughout Wales over the last 8 years.
Jamie has a long history with darts. Having played since he was 16, he used to practice around 3 hours every night. At 18, Jamie was the youngest ever winner of the Pontyclun and District Darts League, only for his title to be stolen the following year by his 17 year old brother! Since the kids have come along, Jamie’s got less time to practice, but remains optimistic about his own chances this year.
The event takes place on Saturday 8th October, at Llanharry Workingmen’s Club. It’s open to anyone, of any skill level, with prizes for the female and youth players that reach the furthest point in the tournament. There is also a money-in, money-out, first round losers’ tournament for those who don’t quite make the grade.
Doors open at 11am and registry is at 12:30. Entry is just £5 and hot food and drink will be served all day, kicking off with a hot breakfast from 11am. It’s set to be a great day out for the whole family, with entertainment going on into the evening and even a spot of karaoke.
You don’t need to book in advance and can buy tickets on the door, but if you have any questions get in touch with Jamie on 07581 060 720.
Good luck to Jamie and all of the players!
