NOPPERT EXTENDS SPONSORSHIP WITH WINMAU
World championship finalist, Danny Noppert, has signed a three-year extension to his sponsorship with Winmau, the world’s leading darts brand announced today.
“Noppie” as the Dutch superstar is known on the circuit, became a household name after reaching the final stage of the 2017 Lakeside World Championships, beating defending champion Scott Waites on the way before losing to Glen Durrant in the final.
His recent performances (including strong finishes in the Winmau World Masters, World Darts Trophy and Finder Masters) have seen the 26 year-old from Joure in northwest Holland rocket up the BDO rankings to his current position of sixth.
As part of the Winmau team of the world’s top players, Noppert will continue to represent the company at competitions, events and tournaments around the world. Like his team mates, he will work alongside Winmau’s technical experts to develop and refine his own darts and other equipment.
“There are lots of incredibly talented players coming through the system,” says Winmau’s Sales and Marketing Director, Ian Flack. “Danny is right up there at the top of the list. Many saw his performance in this year’s world championships as a coming of age, and I suppose it was. But it followed many years of success in which he has gone the distance in other major tournaments. Danny is an amazing player and I am delighted he has chosen to continue being a part of the Winmau family.”
Noppert added: “The standard of play in world darts is unbelievable. Just being able to play the game consistently well is not good enough. It takes dedication, commitment and the support of those that are close to you. The team at Winmau have been tremendous – helping me refine my game and equipment and encouraging me to go to each new level.”
Available in 23 and 25 grams, Noppert’s darts are made from 90% military grade tungsten. A black Onyx finish enhances the grip provided by a series of double ring grooves with striking orange stripes completing the classy look. The range can be viewed at: www.winmau.com/det/2606/danny_noppert/ and can be found at all good stockists.
