The UK’s top disabled darts player has finally ended his search for a sponsorship deal thanks to a mobility company in the South West, after being turned down by more than 100 companies.
‘Snowy’ Dyson is ranked as the number one disabled darts player in Britain and is a long standing customer of Plymouth-based Unique Mobility.
Snowy will now act as a brand ambassador for the mobility dealer as he travels the world playing darts.
Obtaining a sponsorship deal has been challenging for the Plymouth-based player, who said he needed a sponsor to support him to compete throughout the country and the world.
He said: “I had been in touch with over 100 major UK companies looking for a sponsorship to help me with my dream of competing for England. I was turned down on every occasion and even told that if I was the number one ranked able-bodied darts player, I’d have a sponsor instantly.
“I’m delighted that Unique Mobility see my potential, and together, we will achieve great things.”
Unique’s company director, Ian Bellamy, said: “Snowy has been a delight to work with over the years, he has supported us in Plymouth during our early days and has been there ever since.
“We’re now in a position to offer Snowy some support to help him maintain his seat as the number one disabled darts player.”
Snowy recently returned from Belgium where he threw the winning double in England’s final match of the Winmau WDDA World Cup.
Snowy actively plays darts all over Plymouth. He trains with a variety of players, some who are completely new to the sport.
