Richard George (born 18 December 1989) is an English former darts player. He is the son of former world championship finalist Bobby George. They became the first father-and-son duo to play in the BDO version of the World Championship, when Richie played in the 2013 event.
George qualified for the 2013 BDO World Championship as the 15th seed. He played Dave Prins in the first round, and survived seven match darts en route to a 3-2 win. He then beat Jimmy Hendriks 4-2 in the second round, and recovered from 3-1 down against Jan Dekker to win 5-4 and reach the semi-finals, where he was beaten 6-1 by Scott Waites.
Courtesy of his run at Lakeside, George qualified for the 2013 Grand Slam of Darts, where he was drawn in Group C alongside two-time PDC World Champion Adrian Lewis, former Lakeside winner Christian Kist, and another debutant in the Belgian Ronny Huybrechts. George finished bottom of the group, losing his opening match 5-2 to Lewis, before losing by the same scoreline to Kist to confirm his elimination. George ended his campaign with a 5-3 defeat to group winner Huybrechts.
He has not played competitive darts since the 2014 Grand Slam of Darts, where he also lost all 3 group games. He only won 3 legs in the entire tournament.
George is the son of former darts player Bobby George and runs his own company advising businesses how to deal with aggressive and violent behaviour, particularly in the mental health field.
George has a son, Edward, born in July 2013. Edward was born less than 24 hours after his cousin, Robert, was born to Richie's brother, also called Robert.
In September 2016, George was found to have been guilty of assaulting hospital staff. It was understood that George had been drinking alcohol after taking sleeping pills, and he was later given a 12-month community order and ordered to do 100 hours of unpaid work.
