The 2013 William Hill Grand Slam of Darts, was the seventh staging of the tournament, organised by the Professional Darts Corporation. The event took place from 9–17 November 2013 at the Wolverhampton Civic Hall, Wolverhampton, England.

Raymond van Barneveld was the defending champion, but he was eliminated in the group stage.[1] The semi-final match between Phil Taylor and Adrian Lewis proved to be the highest quality in darts history as the players averaged 109.76 and 110.99 respectively, the highest combined average ever recorded. The PDC record of 31 maximums set in the 2007 World Championship final was broken as 32 were made in this match in 32 fewer legs.[2] Taylor won the match 16–9 and went on to seal his fifth Grand Slam title by beating Robert Thornton 16–6 in the final.[3]
