The World Darts Federation are deeply saddened to learn that Bob Potter OBE passed away earlier today at the age of 94.
Bob was an ardent supporter of darts, with his iconic Lakeside Country Club playing host to the Darts World Championships from 1986 to 2019. Lakeside also served as the lead sponsor from 2004 to 2019 and once again in 2022, when he welcomed us back with open arms.
We look forward to continuing his legacy at the venue over at least the next three years.
At this sad time, the thoughts of the WDF family are with Bob's loved ones and we express our sincere condolences to his family and friends
