Nicknamed Barney on the professional circuit, Raymond is one of the most prolific darts players in the sports history, having recently won the World Darts Championship in June, along with numerous other competitions around the world throughout his extensive career.


The Dutchman visited the archipelago with his wife Syliva, and conducted a series of clinics aimed at children and darts enthusiasts.


Other partners to support the visit included Air Seychelles, Savoy Resort and Spa and Sporting Life, which initiated the project in coordination with the National Sports Council.
