William Hill plc has announced its title sponsorship of the 2011 Grand Slam of Darts, which will be held at the Wolverhampton Civic Hall from November 12-20. The event will be broadcasted by Sky Sports, with 32 players taking part including some of the best, such as three-time winner Phil Taylor, reigning champion Scott Waites, and World Champion Adrian Lewis.

Nine-day extravaganza will culminate on Sunday, November 20, with the semi-finals and final played across two sessions. The players will combat for the GBP100,000 first prize.

As PDC chairman Barry Hearn said: "We'd like to welcome William Hill as the new title sponsors of the 2011 Grand Slam of Darts and look forward to working with such a well-known and respected brand. This tournament brings together the greatest players in darts, who have qualified by virtue of their achievements in major tournaments over a two-year period, and in William Hill we have a sponsor whose stature reflects that."

The Grand Slam of Darts will host great players: Taylor, Waites and Lewis, joined by Premier League Darts champion Gary Anderson, UK Open winner James Wade and former World Champions Raymond van Barneveld, John Part, Mark Webster, Steve Beaton and Ted Hankey.
