Petersen gives Junior darts in Nottingham big boost as part of latest Bullseye Maths visit

Ahead of Thursday's Premier League Darts in Nottingham, Devon Petersen took part in the latest Bullseye Maths visit.

Launched earlier this year to encourage maths development in children, it features in-school sessions as well as an online portal - all centred around darts.

The popular African Warrior also paid a visit to the Room 180 Academy at Nottingham College which has began hosting a JDC Academy and on his school visit also did his famous Waka Waka dance with the pupils of Cotmanhay Junior School in Ilkeston.

"It's great to see the Bullseye Maths programme and I loved it," said Petersen. "It's a fun way to learn maths and it's fantastic because it's interactive and helps the children to learn.

"Knowing your multiplications of two and three is crucial in darts and we get used to those patterns, but you have to be able to add up, subtract and multiply all at the same time.

"The session included some of that and the children were great, they really got involved and enjoyed themselves.

"Growing up, I was okay in school but this programme is so good for your basic maths. Helping the next generation of players to learn the game is a big ambition of mine and Bullseye Maths is a brilliant concept."

Petersen added: "I'm working to set up my own Academy in South Africa and I want to continue working with the PDC to develop the sport there and worldwide."
