The four day weekend all kicks off tonight with the usual Thursday night Premier League Darts, this week coming from Glasgow, with the highlight game being 16 time world champion Phil Taylor facing four time world champion Raymond Van Barneveld.

Also tonight, Super League Champions Leeds Rhinos face Yorkshire rivals Bradford Bulls in the rugby league clash. tomorrow sees a full schedule of Super League games too, with top of the table Huddersfield Giants away at bottom of the table Salford City Reds.

Tomorrow night also sees Championship football take stage before the Premier League and full league fixtures take their usual place on the Saturday afternoon.

Centre stage on Sunday goes to the annual boat race between Oxford and Cambridge University, which in the past has produced some cracking encounters, including the hitting of oars and other objects in the Thames.

The Miami masters also finishes this weekend with Andy Murray looking to claim another title as he looks to prove he is in the form of his life.

Rory McIlroy will also aim to return to world number one over the weekend as he was overtaken by the greatest in Tiger woods last Monday.

Bank Holiday Monday also offers a full schedule of rugby league as well as a mouth watering clash between Chelsea and Manchester United in the FA Cup.
