Techniques At The Table: The Art Of Becoming A Darts Master

  • Written on:

Darts isn't just about doubles on a night out...

Darts is the perfect After Hours Athlete sport, a game that can be played using just the one hand, freeing up the other to hold your drink as you amble up to the oche.

Sound good? Let’s see how we can help you perfect aiming your arrows.

Play By The Rules! There are lots of different types of game you can play. Score-chasing, such as 301 or 501, Around The Clock, or of course Killer, and what’s best is that they can be played as many people as you can fit round the dartboard.

Warm Up! Throwing darts over a long period can be tiring, make sure you warm your arms up before you play so you don’t strain anything. Our preferred method is the lifting of liquid filled glass to the lips and consuming the contents repeatedly over the course of several hours.

Strike A Firm Balance! It’s important to keep a solid stance when you’re throwing. You should be stood facing the board, turned slightly side on so your throwing arm is in front of your body. What’s great about this is that it allows you plenty of maneuverability and you can see who’s keeping an eye on your game.

Pick Your Place! How can you ever hope to hit the bull’s eye if you don’t concentrate on the middle of the board?  Know where you’re aiming on the dartboard, fix your focus and throw!

What do you do to make sure you get the perfect flight from your darts?
