Luke Littler reveals surprise retirement decision as 17-year-old believes he’s already been ‘playing a long time’ – only months after exploding onto the scene in fairytale World Darts Championship run.

Luke Littler has hinted that he may retire playing darts at a young age, which would be good news for his opponents.


Littler, 17, rose to prominence after reaching the World Darts Championship final, where he lost to world number one Luke Humphries.


Despite his juvenile experience, he claims to have ‘been playing for a long time’ and could retire decades earlier than expected.


If he played until the age of Phil Taylor, 63, he’d be throwing darts at a board until 2065.


Luke Littler has revealed the shocking age at which he may retire – and his opponents may be relieved!

The 17-year-old expressed a desire to retire in 10 or 15 years, indicating a potential retirement age of 27 + 4.
