A regular on the Canadian WDF circuit, he has won some big open tournaments, including the 2015 Halifax Open, and the 2016 Canada Open.

Nickname: The Nigel

Nationality: South African

Home Town: Cape Town, South Africa

Nolan Arendse joined Showtime Darts in late 2016 along with his South African counterpart Warrick Scheffer. It was quite a coup to be able to sign 2 excellent players together. Both players have been exchanging 1st and 2nd place in the South African rankings for some time, with regular 100+ averages. Nolan has come through some extreme personal issues to still be playing top level darts – in 2010 he was diagnosed with a hypo-thyroid which forced him to give up darts for 18 months due to being partly paralysed. Two of his vertebrae were then crushed in a car accident after which Arendse had to wear a body brace for six months. And soon after he suffered a heart attack. But the phenomenal mental strength of the man means he remains as focused as ever to make it on the PDC circuit. Nolan qualified for the 2015 PDC World Championships, winning his preliminary game before going out in the first round. We believe Nolan has what it takes to once again mix it with the top PDC players, and we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership. Nolan uses signature Showtime Darts.

Another player to be no stranger to playing in the PDC World Championships, he qualified 2016 tournament by winning the 2015 South African Masters. Now firmly established as one the top names in South Africa, we aim to help Warrick to push on to World status. Warrick uses signature Showtime Darts
