A Little History from All About Darts

Luckily for the modern darts player the game was not one of the many sports banned during the suppressive reigns of the middle ages. Darts was considered a sport of military men and useful for keeping soldiers throwing arms in practice. The Dark Ages were therefore a fairly bright time for ye old darts.

As hurling darts became more widespread under official sanction it apparently graduated from the ranks. Regimental competition increased, officers, and later even nobility picked up the game, so very soon cries of "mugs away" could be heard echoing through the stone corridors of many a lord's castle. It is an historical fact that Ann Boleyn gave a set of darts to King Henry VIII though the story she lost her head when she beat him has not been verified

The Stance

The stance itself depends upon how the individual feels most comfortable while throwing, but the best way to stand is with both feet firmly planted behind the oche; slighty apart, but heels in line, in the case of a right-hand dart player, with the toe pointed slightly to the left, and the right toe pointed directly towards the dartboard. The reverse for a left-handed plarer, of course.

Peter Wright (PDC Europe)

Snakebite’s latest triumph means he’s now edged ahead of Michael van Gerwen for the number of individual events won this season although the Dutchman did also lift the World Cup of Darts trophy alongside Raymond van Barneveld.

The UK Open champion, who had brushed aside Robbie Green 6-1 in his opening match on Saturday, battled past Stephen Bunting 6-3 during Sunday afternoon's third round session before crushing Dave Chisnall 6-1 in the quarter-finals despite averaging 96.

He then trailed third seed Mensur Suljovic 3-1 before winning five legs on the trot to storm into the final, where he averaged over 103 and hit six of his nine attempts at doubles to clinch his fourth European Tour crown of the campaign and the top prize of £25,000.

Van Gerwen’s title defence at the Ostermann Arena was ended during the third round when he was stunned 6-2 by Rob Cross in a superb match which saw both players average over 102.

Cross, who has won two Players Championship events this year, was hoping to kick on and claim his maiden European Tour title but he was unable to reproduce the same standard during a 6-2 defeat to the eventual runner-up in the quarter-finals.

King then overcame this season's Gibraltar Darts Trophy champion Michael Smith 6-4 as he became the first unseeded player to reach a European Tour final for almost 18 months. 

But his hopes of landing his first PDC event since winning the 2014 European Darts Grand Prix were thwarted by a sublime performance from the world number three.

Wright took out 136 to break throw in the first leg with a 12-darter before doing so again in the third with a 13-darter to go 2-1 up before winning three more on the trot. 

King did pull one back with a 13-darter but Wright finished the match off in style with a 101 checkout.

He told the PDC's official website: "Mervyn had beaten everyone in the other half and I had to play my best in the final, and luckily enough I played my best game of the weekend.

"The crowd got me hyped up and really focused and my adrenaline was crazy, and the 136 in the first leg was a great start.

"Mervyn has worked really hard to come back to where he is now and he's had loads of semi-finals and finals in the floor tournaments this year, and he's coming back.

"I learned from my mistakes and transferred that into wins, and it's paying off. I want to win everything and it's a great way to set myself up for the World Series events coming up in Shanghai and Las Vegas." 

King, who collects £10,000, said: "I've done really well and I'm very proud of what I've done after having to qualify for this event. I've failed at the last hurdle but what a hurdle to fail at. 

"I've known Peter for 20 years and he played some fantastic darts all day. I couldn't answer that tonight and he was a worthy winner."

A small group of central Queenslanders will make history this weekend as the first Aboriginal darts team to take part in an international competition.

The Daley darts team from Rockhampton will play in the Taranaki International Darts Open in New Zealand, and manager Heath Daley is pretty chuffed.

"We're the first Aboriginal darts team to be invited to compete overseas," Mr Daley said.

The team, also known as Munda Gatta, played the Dart Players Association circuit last year where they gained international attention and the invitation.

"Win, lose or draw, as long as we perform to the best of our ability on and off the board, that's the main focus," Mr Daley said.

Munda Gatta struggled to find sponsorship for this trip, so resorted to their own fundraising.

"So to everyone who bought tickets, we just want to represent them … and if anyone has a win, bonus."

Improving literary and numeracy skills

Although the Daley Darts Team has been together for only two and a half years, Mr Daley is no stranger to the professional scene.

He managed Western Australian and international player, Kyle Anderson, who is now based in England and plays in the Professional Darts Corporation competition.

Mr Daley is passionate about getting Aboriginal youth involved, particularly as a way to improve literacy and numeracy.

"We want to support Aboriginal players to play the main stage, give them opportunity, and unfortunately we don't get much of that sort of opportunity," Mr Daley said.

"It's good for social skills, brilliant for literacy and numeracy, and there are the people you meet and the friendships you make.

"With young people, it gets them off the street."

A sport for all ages

Kyla Ahmann, at 19 years old, is the youngest member of Munda Gatta, but she is a veteran — playing competitively for seven years.

"I really grew up in darts," Ms Ahmann said.

"My dad was playing from when I was really little and I just watched him play. It's been in my life forever, my aunties, my uncles.

"It really is a mental game and you have to be strong in that department."

She said she was very excited about the international competition and even more about being the first Aboriginal team to compete at such a level.

"It's kind of unbelievable," she said.

Making history was not lost on team mate Phillip Grant either, who started playing darts as a teenager in the north Queensland town of Tully.

"It's awesome. It's something I don't want to miss," he said.

This is his first international competition, and his first trip overseas, and he hoped his family and friends would be inspired by this.

"I'm just going to go over and play to the best of my ability, take the good with the bad and if I lose, I'll just come back and work on it again and hopefully next year will do a bit better," Mr Grant said.

Like Mr Grant, colleague Daniel Forrest also started playing darts at 15, but he had a break until two years ago.

This will be his first time presenting Daley Darts.

"It's the social atmosphere and the competitiveness behind it — I'm a pretty competitive person at heart — and it gets you thinking and your maths is up there," Mr Forrest said.

"I love the sport."

Michael van Gerwen took the title in Austria

Michael van Gerwen won his third European Tour title of 2017 with a brilliant 6-5 defeat of Michael Smith in Sunday's Austrian Darts Open final at the Multiversum in Schwechat.

World Champion Van Gerwen has previously taken victories in Jena and Hamburg this year, and was victorious once again as he claimed the £25,000 title in dramatic fashion against Smith.

Former World Youth Champion Smith was bidding to follow up last month's Gibraltar Darts Trophy triumph with his second win of the year, and led Van Gerwen during a thrilling final.

The St Helens ace opened up a 2-0 lead, punishing his rival's miss at tops in the opening leg before breaking with a 13-darter which featured a 180.

Van Gerwen hit back to level, but Smith took out 86 on the bull to lead 3-2 and then brought the Austrian crowd to its feet with a magnificent 170 checkout for a 4-3 advantage.

Van Gerwen, though, hit back once more as a 14-darter squared the game before finishing double 18 for a 13-darter to break after Smith missed top for a 117 checkout.

Smith took out 70 in leg ten to force a decider, but Van Gerwen was first to a finish and took out 100 on tops for a 12-darter as he secured his 17th career European Tour win.

"This means a lot to me," said Van Gerwen, who had warmed up for the event with a visit to Rapid Vienna football club on Friday. "I came here to win and I'm glad I could do that, but I played well, especially today.

"Michael is getting back in form, he is a fantastic player and he kept me under pressure. The 170 finish was great and he put me under a lot of pressure, but I was really glad to win."

Van Gerwen followed up Saturday's second round win over Austrian Christian Kallinger by seeing off debutant Dutchman Vincent van der Meer, Germany's Martin Schindler and Spain's Cristo Reyes on his way to the final.

His semi-final win over Reyes saw the world number one record an unstoppable 115.57 average as he stormed through to take on Smith.

Four-time European Tour winner Smith had missed double 12 for a nine-dart finish during his quarter-final win over Mervyn King during another memorable day for the 26-year-old.

Having defeated Chris Quantock in round two on Saturday, he also saw off Jelle Klaasen in the third round on Sunday afternoon and was a 6-4 semi-final winner against Joe Cullen.

After being denied by Van Gerwen, Smith admitted: "I tried so much to keep him under pressure. Michael's number one for a reason and he deserves it."

Cullen's run saw him reach a first European Tour semi-final since March 2016, as he averaged an outstanding 107 in his 6-3 third round win over Kim Huybrechts before sealing a 6-4 quarter-final defeat of Kim Viljanen with a 160 checkout.

Reyes had performed superbly on Sunday to reach his second successive European Tour semi-final, edging out Simon Whitlock in a deciding leg in the third round before averaging 100 in a 6-3 quarter-final defeat of Daryl Gurney.

He shared the opening two legs of his semi-final with Van Gerwen, but was unable to stop the World Champion pulling away to victory.

Finland's Kim Viljanen won through to his first quarter-final on the European Tour as he followed up his victories over Krzysztof Ratajski and number two seed Peter Wright with a 6-2 third round defeat of youngster Chris Dobey.

Emerging German youngster Schindler was also appearing in a European Tour quarter-final for the first time following his 6-4 third round win over Jamie Bain, although Van Gerwen ended the 20-year-old's hopes in the last eight.

Austria's Mensur Suljovic was joined by fellow former European Tour winners Kim Huybrechts and Simon Whitlock, Dutch trio Jelle Klaasen, Benito van de Pas and Vincent van der Meer, emerging Chris Dobey and Scotland's Jamie Bain in losing out in the third round.
