Wayne Mardle

Book for an event

Wayne Mardle is a retired professional darts player for the Professional Darts Corporation and former player in the British Darts Organisation. He has been known as Hawaii 501 since 2000, a play on the title of the popular television series, Hawaii Five-O, due to the Hawaiian shirts he started wearing in 1998 for a bet, and 501 being the start score of a leg of darts. His dress sense, coupled with his crowd-pleasing onstage activity (such as dancing to the interval music), saw him become one of the most popular players on the circuit.

He now coaches and commentates for Sky.
