Darts can be enjoyed by anyone - so whether you are striving to replicate the feats of Fallon Sherrock, Lisa Ashton or Trina Gulliver MBE, looking for a sociable, friendly sport or just want to give darts a try, we're here to help!
Darts offers more benefits than you probably realise. It can improve concentration and hand/eye coordination. It enhances strategic thinking and builds confidence, not just by improving ability and achieving success, but by allowing you to play in teams, meet new people and expand your social network.
For many, it is a release; it can take your mind off of the stresses of everyday life, keeps you active and toughens your mental resolve.
For those who excel, there are opportunities to travel the globe and forge a career in one of the most popular televised sports.
How to get started
Make sure you have the basics! Darts is something you can set up at home; a good dartboard, a set of darts and you're off!
In terms of tournament and league play, each country will have a different set-up and it will depend on the level you are looking to play at.
In the UK, there are several organisations which can help you get involved. The UKDA are responsible for leagues across the country at Superleague and County level. Superleague is a great way to start, with a view of progressing to county level.
MADdarts also cover the UK, with a focus on local leagues and provide a clear path for progression to elite level.
And, if your ambitions lie on the tour, then the WDF have a comprehensive diary and directory where you can pick and choose the tournaments you want to enter across the globe!
The possibilities are endless!
