Christian “Ian” Perez arrived this morning (Manila time) at Wolverhampton City in the United Kingdom for the Cazoo Grand Slam of Darts 2022 that will be held from November 12 to 20 at the Aldersley Leisure Village. After 22 hours of travel from Manila to Birmingham via Emirates, Perez checked in at the Novotel Hotel where he will spend time acclimating to the environment and preparing for the tournament.

After Sunday’s Tour Card Holder Qualifier, the Grand Slam of Darts line-up has been finalized and the draw for the round-robin groupings will follow the next day. All group matches are best of nine legs. After three games, the top two in each group qualify for the knock-out stage. Gerwin Price, the defending champion, will be in Group A, Peter Wright will be in Group E, and Michael van Gerwen in Group G.

Ian Perez qualified to play at the Grand Slam of Darts after winning the PDC Asian Championship in Fukuoka last September. We call on the Filipino darting community to support and offer well wishes to our fellow-Darterong Pinoy as he represents the Philippines and all of Asia in the Cazoo Grand Slam of Darts 2022.
