Bobby George

Darts Exhibitions, After Dinner Speaker, Celebrity Host

Bobby George is without doubt the most colourful, charismatic and entertaining player in the history of darts. But what makes him so special is that he didn't pick up a dart until he was 30 years of age!

However, he might have been a late starter but it didn't diminish his ability to dazzle all that came before him. Indeed, he literally burst onto the professional darts scene in the late 1970′s with a natural flair and ability to enhance his larger-than-life personality

1979 was to be the year that Bobby George announced that he had arrived as a world-class player, with an incredible victory in the famous News Of The World Championship.

There had never been a more impressive victory before or since, as he became the first and only player to win the title without dropping one single leg of darts! His best of 3-leg televised victories from the Quarter-Finals onwards took him just 93 darts in total (an average of 97) to establish him as a true World Champion.

Now the supreme master of the spotlight, Bobby secured his place as the People's Champion in the 1980 Embassy World Championship. Seen by millions on BBC Television, his good looks, cheeky grin and wonderful ability as a darts player immediately established him as an outstanding character. He beat Dave Whitcombe, Leighton Rees and Cliff Lazarenko to produce an epic 1980 final against Eric Bristow.

In what is still regarded as one of the greatest darts matches of all time, Bobby made his first ever entrance with sequinned shirt and candelabra. He became the Liberace of televised darts and was in a winning position until an uncharacteristic loose dart handed the title to Bristow

Over the years, Bobby has represented England on 26 occasions and remains in the list of all-time Top 10 winning players for England.

Away from darts, Bobby is happily married to Marie and lives with their two sons, Robert and Richard in the 18-bedroom George Hall, which he built himself.

Once Bobby starts you can't shut him up. He really is value for money. One of the best after dinner speakers in the country.
