     Let's eat

    Darts & Stuff of InterestCharis writes "On first view Food is not directly connected to a darts tournament and I can’t remember I did ever see a player eat during a Major Tournament. During the floor tournaments in the venues one can usually find some kind of snack counter which offers hot dogs or similar things though even there the players only seem to eat when the tournament is over for them. Might be they eat a chocolate bar in between or some crisps but in generally the “liquid” food seems to be enough. Though the players have to be at the venue at least two hours before their matches during the major tournaments they don’t seem to eat there at all. They very often disappear a short time after the match – probably then they go for their meal. Would they really not eat at all a lot of them probably would be a little bit slimmer…

    But there are not only players at a major tournament there is a lot of staff as well and it works for much longer hours and can’t just leave. Members of the staff are around hours before the players and only leave when all the players have left. There is a lot that has to be prepared. Even the commentators and the mc arrive early to get into the mood and to collect some information. It’s not that they do everything off the cuff and it’s not that they can say everything what comes into their minds.

    For all the Sky Sport people – and that’s quite a lot – beside the Civic Hall in Wolverhampton an “open air” kitchen was established beside a mobile dinner – might be for the cooked meal of the day. Every time I passed there a young man worked hard to produce the meals. I did see a lot of tuna and ham and sandwiches, there were dozens of bananas, one day he prepared plates with cake and on my last day in Wolverhampton he chopped broccoli. As it started to get very cold it probably was not a rather comfortable workplace…
    During the evening I could see several times somebody bring in plates with sandwiches for the television people which they take and eat during the commercials or whenever they find the time.
    Of course people in the pressroom eat as well though it rarely happens when it’s only played in the evenings, it’s almost possible to find the time when the matches are under way. But sweets are usually much in demand whether it’s cookies, chocolate bars and toffees. They seem to come from no-where and are there for all to grab.

    For me it's an English breakfast in the morning and in the evening my attempt to get a nice meal can look like this: Chicken Pie with gravy, a mixed salad and a piece of Christmas cheesecake.

    Whether there exists some kind of Wolverhampton specialties I couldn’t find out but there exists a brewery in Wolverhampton and a little bit outside in Halfpenny Green which is a part of Wolverhampton one can even find a wine a vineyard which products got already numerous awards. "

    I believe John had breakfast around 4:30am at the LVDC in 2006 and he was starving by the time he finished at the end of the day. We went to dinner after he won and though he managed to eat it was clear he was mentally and physically drained from the matches. I suspect a lot of the top players eat very early and then nibble on something light during the day when they can but unlikely ever right before a major match.

    I'm on official occasions even can't think about food. Although people are different. Some people can not to eat under tension, for someone just eating  helps to not be nervous. Thanks for the interesting sketches about feeding in the tournament.
