John Verwey (born July 27, 1957), nicknamed The Walrus, is a Canadian darts player. During a 25-year career, he has enjoyed numerous wins competing in his native Ontario, Canada, going on to represent the province at the national level on four occasions. In 2005, Verwey earned a spot in the PDC World Darts Championship where he lost in the third round to Colin Lloyd.
Verwey honed his innate darts talent most of his youth but hadn't yet turned professional until around the mid-nineties, where he met with some success for the first time at the Canada National Championships. Primarily renowned as a singles champion, John Verwey often forayed into the doubles scene, alongside fellow darts player and spouse, Heather.
Verwey is currently unranked, and as such, receives no benefit of sponsorship as many professional darts players often do.
Verwey is a dual-ticketed millwright and electrician and currently operates a laboratory at the Bruce Nuclear Generating Station near Port Elgin. He maintains a sprawling farm estate in Auburn, Ontario, with his wife, three children and relatives.
