Welcome to The Official Site of Stuart ‘KO’ Kellett!

Stuart Kellett LogoThis is the new homepage of Stuart ‘KO’ Kellett, Winmau Masters finalist, and now PDC Darts Professional.

After winning a PDC Tour card in 2012, Stuart has already moved up to 78th in the PDC Rankings (which is a 2 year rolling system, so plenty of time to move right up that!), and qualified for the 2013 world championships coming through a tough qualifier field in Barnsley.

Stuart has already taken some big name scalps, and is starting to settle into the new ‘professional’ regime of the PDC floor tournaments.

With his first experience of a PDC TV tournament under his belt (UK Open in Bolton), he has now also qualified for one of the big money European Tour events – the European Darts Open in Germany in July. With a proven darts management team behind him (MDA and Mitchell promotions, who also look after Dean Winstanley and Justin Pipe), Team Kellett is now looking to ‘KO’ his opposition and shoot up those rankings. Get in touch if you wish to be part of that team as a sponsor.
