WINMAU SIGNS CANADA’S NICK SMITH
Winmau, the world’s leading darts brand, has expanded its team of international players with the signing of Canada’s Nick Smith, one of the most exciting prospects in the game right now.
22 year-old Smith, who is based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, already has a string of youth titles to his name and was the National Darts Federation of Canada (NDFC) Youth Provincial Champion for eight years running. He is the current Cape Breton Open Singles winner and holds Canadian doubles titles including the Cape Breton Open Men’s Doubles, National Men’s Doubles and Canadian Open Men’s Doubles.
Ranked sixth in Canada, Smith is also representing his country at this year’s World Cup in Kobe, Japan. As part of his two-year Winmau sponsorship, he will represent the company at events and tournaments around the world.
Having already overcome the dreaded dartitis, Smith, who plays with 25 gram Winmau Stratos darts, is determined to build upon this year’s successes.
“Being sponsored by Winmau means the world to me,” he said. “I work incredibly hard at my darts, fitting it around my day job. Being recognised by the biggest name in the game is simply incredible. 2017 has been a great year, but I want to do even better next year. With Winmau’s help I want to continue to improve and be the best player I can.”
“Nick’s fierce determination to succeed is clear to see,” says Ian Flack, Winmau’s Sales and Marketing Director. “He is a tremendous talent and I am sure great things await him in the very near future. I am delighted we have been able to sign yet another wonderful international player.”
