THE field for the 2016 SINGHA Beer Grand Slam of Darts has been confirmed, following the conclusion of the Ladbrokes World Series of Darts Finals.

The SINGHA Beer Grand Slam of Darts brings together 32 players from both the Professional Darts Corporation and BDO systems to compete across nine days at the Wolverhampton Civic Hall from November 12-20, live on Sky Sports.

Qualification for players from the PDC system is primarily based on the finalists of televised events over a one-year period, which produced ten stars as Gary Anderson, Michael van Gerwen, Max Hopp, Phil Taylor, Adrian Lewis, Nathan Aspinall, Dave Chisnall, Peter Wright, Mensur Suljovic and Raymond van Barneveld secured Wolverhampton spots.

Former Grand Slam finalist James Wade was joined by Alan Norris in qualifying as European Tour event winners, with Benito van de Pas, Ian White, Simon Whitlock and Gerwyn Price seeing their Players Championship victories secure them spots from the reserve list.

In addition to those 16 pre-qualified players, a further eight places went to the PDC Qualifier in Barnsley last month, with former Wolverhampton runner-up Robert Thornton amongst those players to win a spot in Wolverhampton alongside emerging stars Dimitri Van den Bergh, Chris Dobey, Nathan Derry and Ted Evetts and more experienced aces Brendan Dolan, Darren Webster and James Wilson.

The eight BDO representatives are headed by reigning Lakeside Champion Scott Waites, who won the 2010 Grand Slam of Darts and is also a former finalist in Wolverhampton.

Martin Adams, Scott Mitchell and Darryl Fitton are returning to the Grand Slam while local star Jamie Hughes joins Glen Durrant, Jeff Smith and Danny Noppert in making their debuts at the Wolves Civic.

The opening four days of the SINGHA Beer Grand Slam of Darts sees the 32 players split into eight groups for the round-robin phase, with the top two players in each group then progressing to the knockout stage from the last 16 onwards.

The draw for the SINGHA Beer Grand Slam of Darts will be made on Monday afternoon and advertised at www.pdc.tv.

Tickets for the SINGHA Beer Grand Slam of Darts can be purchased by calling 0870 320 7000 or online at www.theticketfactory.com/PDC.

Agree with that but Glen Durrant might have a shout if Gando's poor run continues.

Completely agree, that was honestly the one I struggled the most with picking. I will say that he did look better this weekend than he did in the Grand Prix, didn't have the first dart low on the T20 as often. But I'm not sure how the equipment change (in regards to the darts, not glasses) will trouble him. He just looks off.

Jeff Smith maybe can go to next stage he can do it

Now I would say this but I think Duzza has a chance too. The big gun is Gando and you can never quite tell what you'll get with him at the moment and, with all due respect, there are more feared PDC players than Norris.

Really like the look of this field. For me a perfect combo of big names, younger PDC players and good quality BDO players. Looking forward to this one!

Agree with this and the 8 BDO players that are there this year are a good representation of the top level of the BDO. I think they should do well and certainly won't be trounced like some have in the past!
