Dart Vader wins prizes in our Nickname competition

by Approved Garages | 28 Jun 2017

The Premier League Darts sponsorship 2017 by Approved Garages came to an end in May, and we’ve had some excellent results with the campaigns that were initiated on the back of this partnership.
One particularly interesting campaign we launched this year was the ‘Garage Nickname’ competition.
We invited garage technicians to put themselves forward for a little darts-related humour. The challenge was to make a 10 second video holding up an Approved Garages sign card, with their own made-up nickname.
Some of the favourite entries included, Josh ‘The Boy Racer’ Foster, Martin ‘Grumpy Grandad’ Griggs and Glynn ‘The Finisher’ Levi.
After a poll on social media, the selected winner, that the public believed to have come up with the most creative nickname was “Dart Vader” – Congratulations Bash Akhtar from M.A Service Centre.

Bash won a range of prizes which included a signed dart board (by all 10 premier league players) and his very own nickname emblazoned darts’ shirt.
