THE HAGUE –
After announcing his comeback, darter Raymond van Barneveld has another challenge. On Saturday he will open his own darts shop in The Hague, where the darts legend will also give clinics. ‘I’ve always wanted to do something like that, but now I have more time for it,’ says Barneveld in the Muijs in de Middag program on Radio West.
Barney’s Darts and Trophies opens its doors tomorrow at Goudsbloemlaan in The Hague. Van Barneveld will regularly be in the shop itself. “It is not that I am there every day, but we will announce that I will be there several times a month,” says the darter. ‘That’s nice for the visitors: a photo, a conversation, always fun.’
He will also advise people. ‘I am not aware of all brands, but I will certainly do so! People have been asking me how to play darts for years, I can only determine that when I see you. That will certainly happen now. ‘
Van Barneveld calls the store ‘a small museum’. His world cups are also there, for example, where visitors can take a picture. ‘It is a Barney darts experience with light and sound and the best known prices. Fans can have their picture taken with that. I am very excited! ‘
Visitors can not only come to the shop for new arrows or a photo moment, there will also be clinics. ‘For business or for the people at home. How to stand and so on. ‘
According to the darter, the opening of the shop does not conflict with his comeback. He is busy to get back to normal, and that also makes the kilos fly off. ‘I don’t eat carbohydrates and I’m fine. I’m on the scale every day to keep it taut. ‘
But it is still quite a job to get back to the same level. ‘You have to compare it with a football player like Bergkamp who has stopped for a year and then has to start with the amateurs again. You have nothing, you have to climb again. But you do have that talent. It can go very quickly, or it can become a year plan. ‘ And how often he can be found in the store will also depend on that. ‘If I don’t get a tour card, then I also have more time here.’
