Mark started playing darts in 1991 with a few of his workmates locally in Coventry. He joined his local pub team (The Devonshire Arms in Wyken, Coventry). He used to go and watch his mates Nick Gedney, and Pete Allen play for Warwickshire County. They both encouraged Mark to join a Super League team to give him a chance to be selected for the county. He finally made his senior county debut in 1993, and after playing for four consecutive years at this level, he stopped playing in 1997.
In 2010, after a thirteen-year break from the sport, Mark returned to the county darts circuit. In 2011, after was his most successful year at the county level, he was selected to play for England.

However, the floodgates didn’t open, and Mark had to wait another four years for his second tournament victory, the England Classic, in which he upset Dutchman Wesley Harms in the final.
The following year was a fruitful one for Mark, for he won the Lincolnshire Open and the British Open. He qualified for his first World Championship in 2016, losing to defending champion Scott Mitchell in the second round, and it was another Scott - Waites, this time - who ended his journey in 2017..
Mark’s greatest success to date is the back-to-back Dutch Open champion titles in 2017/2018. The Dutch open is the biggest darts event in the world and attracted entrance levels of 4000 in 2017 and over 5,000 in 2018
Mark is also back-to-back Winmau World Master runner up for 2016/2017 and the 2018 Isle of Man Classic Champion. He beat the then-current World Champion Glen Durrant in the final 5-4. He was the BDO World Champions runner-up in 2018
