Paul Lim tells The Darts Show Podcast about his love for the game

Paul Lim: Represents Singapore
Paul Lim: Represents Singapore

Paul Lim spoke of his continued love for the sport on The Darts Show Podcast ahead of his return to the BetVictor World Cup of Darts in Hamburg this weekend.

A legendary figure in the game, 65-year-old Lim will once again team up with Harith Lim for Singapore at the Barclaycard Arena.

The pair who famously defeated Scotland on the way to the quarter-finals of the 2017 event are eyeing yet another upset against Welsh duo Gerwyn Price and Jonny Clayton in Thursday's opening round.

Lim, who also beat Rob Cross in a singles match at the 2018 event even though England went on to triumph, told The Darts Show Podcast: "I always feel that the chance for a lower ranked country to beat a seed is in the opening round.

"It is a tough format for players who don't play together too often, but in soft-tip darts we play doubles all the time.

"You get used to each other a lot more so maybe it gives us a little bit more of a chance in the first round.

"We have to start the game well, get into the flow and make them hit the panic button."

After almost 40 years in professional darts, Lim continues to play on the PDC Asian Tour, through which he qualified for the 2018/19 World Championship.

Lim also continues to play soft-tip darts in an ever-busy schedule, and the former World Matchplay quarter-finalist explained his love of the game is as strong as ever.

"I still get the same buzz from the game as I always have done," Lim continued.

"Sooner or later I know it's going to come to an end, that's life, but I still have a lot of heart in the game, I love darts so much and I still have that passion.

"I still get excited even now playing in tournaments, meeting new players and when I retire I will still be involved in the darts scene that's for sure.

"I think I've got a few more good years left and I hope I can make the most of them.

"Darts is buzzing everywhere and I'm so glad we have a PDC steel-tip circuit in Asia.

"The sport is being shown a lot more on TV over here now and everyone wants to break into the World Championship or the World Cup of Darts. I think it will definitely continue to grow."
