Christian Perez is now at Minehead, England to compete in the Ladbrokes UK Open from March 1st to 3rd at the Butlins Resort.

After his semi-finals finish at the Players Championship Event 4 and qualifying to the European Grand Prix (ET4) in Leicester, Perez is set to compete at the 22nd UK Open – a major ranking darts tournament organized by the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC). The UK Open will see PDC Tour Card Holders competing across three days alongside Rileys Amateur Qualifiers and top players from the 2023 PDC Winmau Challenge Tour and Development Tour Orders of Merit.

Perez will play against fellow 2023 PDC Tour Card Holder Jeffrey Sparidaans of the Netherlands in the opening second round on Friday afternoon, March 1 (Friday late evening in the Philippines). The winner of the match will go against Vincent van der Voort, another Dutch professional darts player and runner-up of the UK Open 2007.

The Ladbrokes UK Open has a prize fund of £600,000, with £110,000 going to the champion.

Perez will be the first Filipino dart player to participate in the UK Open. We ask the Philippine darting community for their prayers and support for Christian Perez.
