Fitton will aim to go One Step Beyond his run last year when he takes on Les Wallace in the opening round.
"I'm feeling quite confident. I know I've been practicing quite well, I know Les has been practicing. It's one of those situations if it happens, it happens. It's harder when you get older to get into it straight away. I'm a slow starter but I'm still playing well so I'm looking forward to it," he said to World Seniors Darts.
Last year, Fitton faced off against Richie Howson who brought a big local contingent and that contributed to a nervy performance.
"It was a bit nervy, a long time since I'd played on television. I was a bit nervous. A few other issues that I can't talk about but everything was a bit scary, like a rabbit in the headlights.
"Practice, practice, practice but you can't practice nerves."
