The Dreammaker, Dimitri Van den Bergh, talks us through his darts memories

First darts memory?

My first darts memory is when I played on my first dartboard.

First darts hero?

My first darts hero was Darryl Fitton.

First set of darts?

The first set of darts I had were 22g Boxers.

First darts team?

The first team I played for was a team called Monty.

First game on TV?

It was against Ronnie Baxter in the first round of the German Darts Championship in Hildesheim in 2014. Away from the European Tour I made my debut on UK TV in the World Series of Darts Finals at the end of last year.

First nine darter?

I hit my first nine darter when I was 18-years-old.

First professional tournament win?

I beat Fallon Sherrock and Billy Longshaw to win the British Teenage Open in 2013, but my first tournament win in the PDC came in a Challenge Tour event in Crawley later that year.

I played really well that day and beat some good players like Josh Payne, Ryan Harrington and Reece Robinson to win the tournament.

Since then I’ve won some titles on the Development Tour and have also qualified for many more of the European Tour events, which helped me qualify for the World Championship last year, where I beat Ian White in the first round on my debut at Alexandra Palace.
