The Power, Phil Taylor, has announced that his final year on the World Senior Darts Tour will be in 2024. At the age of 63 and a 16-time world champion, Taylor had initially retired from darts in 2018 but returned to competitive play last year after reaching the final of the PDC World Championship.
Taylor expressed his love for performing and the journey he’s had over the past 35 years. He stated that it’s time to step away from the tour and continue working hard to give fans what they want. The World Senior Darts Tour consists of 11 events, including the World Senior Darts Championship at the Circus Tavern in February, and Taylor aims to go out on a high in 2024.
Billy Lovell of World Senior Darts Tour praised Taylor as one of the UK’s greatest sportspeople and expressed gratitude for his decision to come out of retirement at the beginning of the project. Lovell also highlighted how much fun they have had with Taylor and anticipated that his final year on tour would be enjoyable.
