• Conor elected Chair of the new All Party Parliamentary Group on Darts

     Conor McGinn has been elected Chair of the new All Party Parliamentary Group on Darts – the new group in Westminster championing the sport of darts.

    Conor hosted constituents Karl Holden and his dad Dave at the inaugural meeting, where they spoke about the fantastic growth in the St Helens Darts Academy and what the future has in store for darts at grassroots level. Karl also runs A180 Darts, a UK and worldwide darts business based in St Helens.

    St Helens is producing world-class darts players like Dave Chisnall, Stephen Bunting and Michael Smith and has a thriving grassroots darts scene, and the award-winning St Helens Darts Academy is improving the maths, discipline and skills of local kids through enjoyment of sport and competition.

    Conor hosted a reception and MP’s darts tournament in Parliament with Gary Anderson and Phil Taylor.

    The new cross party group will help bring our fantastic darts talent in St Helens and across the country to the fore, and will be working closely with the PDC, BDO, Government and sponsors to promote the sport.
