The second PDC Invitational Fishing Contest is coming to Brookmans Park on Friday, September 12, with a whole host of star names.

Darts legend Phil Taylor will be taking part along with Adrian Lewis, Stephen Bunting, Barry Hearn, Steve Davis and over 20 other sporting icons.

The event is taking place at Shepherds Way Lake to support the Haven House Children’s Hospice. The doors will be open to the public to come and watch their heroes try and land the coveted PDC Fishing Championship.

Sky Sports will be covering the event and a master of ceremonies will be on hand to keep the public in the know.

A dart throw between the contestants will decide lake positions, and then it is down to who can achieve the heaviest catch to walk away victorious.

Food and drink will be available all day and bookmakers will be on-site to offer the latest odds.

Tickets for the day will be £6 and you can get them from the event promoter’s website

Last year the competition was won by darts player Darren Webster, who was presented with his prize by boxing promoter Hearn.

The 2013 event featured darts players Lewis, current world number 23, Ronnie Baxter, Mark Dudbridge and Richie Howson.

Joining them at Shepherd Way Lakes were members of the boxing fraternity including former European super-bantamweight champion Spencer Oliver, former British, Commonwealth, European featherweight and WBO super featherweight champion Nicky Cook, hot prospect Romeo Romaeo and legendary promoter Hearn.
