Stephen Bunting is a professional darts player who is better known in the industry as ‘The Bullet’. Finding success in both the British Darts Organisation (BDO) and the Professional Darts Corporation(PDC), Bunting is recognised as one of the current greats of darts. Available to hire as an after dinner and keynote speaker, Bunting is well liked by audiences for his relaxed and often comical speeches that cover his career, reaching peak performance and having resilience.
Successful from the start, Bunting began in the youth divisions winning both the British Teen Open and the World Youth Masters. Making his BDO World Championship debut in 2004, aged only eighteen, Bunting was triumphant in the first round, before being knocked out in the second. It was a huge achievement for a player of his age. Quickly becoming one to watch, he finished 2012 as the winner of the BDO Championship and the World Darts Federation (WDF) competition.
After becoming the first person to successfully retain the World Masters title without dropping a set in 2013, a year later Stephen Bunting made the decision to switch to the PDC. Starting his PDC career strong, Bunting has secured a number of huge achievements which include: a Semi Final place in the UK Open, Quarter-Final place at the Word Dart Championships, and Last 16 of the World Matchplay. In 2015 he made his Premier League debut which resulted in a famous nail-biting loss to Raymond Van Barneveld at Alexandra Palace, which catapulted Stephen into the hearts of darts fans across the globe.
Most recently, Bunting has reigned victorious in the December 2019 William Hill World Darts Championships, reaching the quatre finals to face and beat Jose Justicia in a sudden deathmatch. 2020 is set to be another exciting year for Bunting and his first appearance will be at the Premier League tournament in Liverpool.

Stephen Bunting uses this bubbly and comedic personality to charm audiences.
