Glen Durrant Mikuru Suzuki and Lisa Ashton will headline the eight BDO representatives at the 2019 Grand Slam of Darts next month, with five players set to make their Wolverhampton debuts.

The BDO representatives among the 32-player field include the 2019 Lakeside Men's and Women's Champions, with Durrant returning for a fourth successive year, while Japan's Suzuki makes her first appearance in the event.

The top-ranked male and female players in the BDO system, Wesley Harms and Lisa Ashton, will also be competing at the Aldersley Leisure Village, alongside BDO World Trophy winner Jim Williams.

Meanwhile, Dutchman Richard Veenstra, England's Dave Parletti and Welshman Wayne Warren will all make their Grand Slam debuts next month in an event which takes place from November 9-17.

The Grand Slam of Darts sees the 32 players split into eight groups of four players for the round-robin phase, with the top two players from each group then progressing to the knockout stage from the last 32 onwards.
