Rafa van der Vaart’s debut as a dart player
I read it in Dutch media today: Rafaël vd Vaart has signed up to participate in the upcoming Denmark Open in May, making his debut as a darts player for the BDO. I’m not to sure what to think of this...

I think City will be ok tonight given some of the players missing for the Spuds.

Anyway back on topic, van der Vaart played in the pro/am event in Germany a couple of months back and must have enjoyed it to want to give it a go - good luck to him. It's a bit like when Sam Allardyce played in the UK Open many years ago.

He has had a lot of time to practice as he hasn't played any football, while being on contract in Denmark.

Don't know how true it is, but just seen someone post on facebook that van der Vaart played darts for Holland at youth level - apparently Robin van Persie did as well - so even though that would have been many years ago this may not be completely alien for him
