WINMAU SIGNS AUSTRALIAN ACE RHYS MATHEWSON
Winmau, the world’s leading darts brand, have signed a two-year sponsorship deal with the rising Australian star, Rhys Mathewson.
Twenty nine year-old Rhys, who finished second in last season’s Dart Players Australia (DPA) Pro Tour rankings, just eight points off the top spot, will represent the company in domestic events in Australia as well as international tournaments.
Perhaps best known for his television appearance in last year’s Sydney Darts Masters where he beat James Wade before going out to Peter Wright, Rhys also finished runner-up in the DPA World Series Rankings, earning him the right to compete in this year’s Series as well. So far this season, he has won two DPA tour events and finished second in five others.
“Players like Rhys have been at the forefront of the sport’s increasing popularity in Australia and I am delighted he will be joining fellow countrymen Simon Whitlock and Paul Nicholson as part of Team Winmau,” says Ian Flack, Winmau’s Sales and Marketing Director. “I am sure it won’t be long until we are seeing him compete more regularly on the world stage.”
Rhys added: “The DPA tours are getting increasingly competitive with the players bringing each other along in terms of quality. Competing in the World Series against the biggest names in the sport was such a fantastic experience and I can’t wait to do it again. With Winmau’s backing I am more determined than ever to test myself against the best in the world.”
