The 63-year-old darts legend Phil Taylor, also known as ‘the Power’, has announced that the World Senior Darts Tour in 2024 will be his final year on the circuit. Taylor had initially retired from the sport in 2018 but returned to competitive darts last year after making the final of the PDC World Championship.
During his illustrious career, Taylor earned the nickname ‘the Power’ and won a total of 16 world championships. He expressed his love for performing and for the journey he’s had over the past 35 years. According to him, it’s time to step away from the tour and continue working hard to give his fans what they want while going out on top. The World Senior Darts Tour consists of 11 events, including the World Senior Darts Championship at the Circus Tavern in February, and Taylor is determined to end his career on a high note 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 their project. Lovell also highlighted how much fun they have had with Taylor and anticipated that his final year on tour would be an enjoyable one for all involved.
