Robbie “Kong” Green

Robbie Green has gained the nickname of  “Kong” perhaps because he is a big lad as dart players often are. He is aged 31 and has been married to his wife Paula for 8 years with two children called Jamie and Chelsea. Darts is obviously his passion and since turning Pro it is also his livelihood. Not surprisingly he counts Eric Bristow and John Lowe amongst his sporting hero’s, but also Kenny Dalglish and he follows Liverpool Football Club.

Robbie has been playing for 15 years and has played for the Merseyside County team from the age of 18 till he was 28 and then he had one season with Clwyd before turning Pro last year. In his 1st season as a Pro Robbie has gone from 350th to 78th in the world rankings. Kong as he is known has made 2 televised finals in his 1st season and as he says “Things are going well.” He has just recently signed a sponsorship deal with Unicorn who’s darts he plays with.

 

Robbie has won numerous minor competitions since he became the northwest junior champion at a tender age. He has proved himself to be a champion in competitions such as the Clwyd Open in 2003, the Carlton Open, again in 2003 and he was also a semi finalist in the Shropshire Open 2003. He was a runner up in 2004 in the Welsh classic and reached the last 32 in the Budweiser UK Open which was televised. Again in 2004 he was a qualifier in the World Matchplay and was a runner up in the Gwynedd Open in 2005. Also in 2005 Robbie was in the Hyde Open Final.

As a pro he is available for exhibitions, presentations, etc and like so many these days, has his own web-site that you can visit by clicking here.
