An additional Premier League darts night will be held at Rotterdam Ahoy on Wednesday April 18, following last week's cancellation in Exeter.
The season's fifth league night, planned for the Westpoint Arena on Thursday March 1, had to be cancelled following heavy snow across the UK and Storm Emma.

Echo Arena will now be Judgement Night, hosting the fixtures originally planned for Exeter
The planned night-five fixtures have now been moved to night 10 at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on April 5, which will now become Judgement Night as the bottom two players in the league table are eliminated.
To restore a sixth league night following Judgement Night, ahead of May's Play-Offs, the visit to Rotterdam Ahoy will now see a double-header take place.
Five fixtures will be held on Wednesday April 18 to precede the sold-out planned league night on Thursday April 19.
Tickets in Rotterdam have been incredibly popular since we first took the Premier League to the Netherlands in 2016, and this is another great chance for Dutch fans to see the world's best players live.
PDC Chairman Barry Hearn
"It was hugely disappointing that last week's planned Premier League in Exeter had to be cancelled," said PDC Chairman Barry Hearn.
"We looked at various options, alongside our host broadcast partners Sky Sports, which would see the Unibet Premier League remain a 16-night season, and it's great that we've been able to add a second night at Rotterdam Ahoy.
