Sven Groen (born 30 May 1995) is a Dutch darts player who plays in the Professional Darts Corporation events.

He won the 14th Development Tour event of 2015 by beating Nick Kenny 4–2 in the final.[1] He then overcame Mario Robbe 6–3 to win the Central European Qualifier for the 2016 World Championship, where he lost 2–1 to Kim Viljanen in the preliminary round.[2][3] Groen failed to earn a tour card at Q School or qualify for the UK Open and in the rest of 2016 reached two quarter-finals in Challenge Tour events and one in a Development Tour event.[4]

After losing in the final round of day one of 2017 Q School, Groen went on to finish third on the Order of Merit and earn a two-year PDC Tour Card.[5]
