Speaking from experience it can be extremely difficult to find places to play darts especially when, you relocate to a new city or town. When I arrived back in Sydney I visited the local Services Club and enquired about Darts! The response I got was I`m pretty sure they do play darts here but, could you come back later and the receptionist should be able to help. I subsequently called back to reception and was told that darts were played on Wednesday nights, somewhere between 7.00 and 8.00pm. I rocked up 6.45 the very next Wednesday evening, however this was team night and the new darts teams will not be selected for another 4 months. My next question is there social darts, not sure was the response, we think a few people turn up on Tuesday night. Disappointing!

Deadeye Darts will provide a $100.00 Gift Voucher to the first 5 Clubs that submit their darts calendar, with complete information as detailed above. In addition these details will be recorded in our Darts News to assist prospective dart players find a suitable venue.

All About Darts

All About Darts

by I L Brackin and W Fitzgerald

Published 1975

Introduction

Darts is one of the most exciting indoor sports you can play with your clothes on. More important, it is one of the most interesting and intensely competitive indoor sports of them all.

Even a veteran darts player would be hard put to find a straight answer to the question. "How do you play darts?" The scope of the sport for variety and skill would take a whole book. This is it.

There is information in this book of value to both the expert and the beginner. It describes not only how to play darts and many different games, but also how to play darts better.

We hope enjoy reading it as much as we have enjoyed compiling it.

I was able to pick up a copy on eBay sometime ago.

The book `"All About Darts" was published in 1975 by Ivan Brackin and William Fitzgerald

Shop for the Michael van Gerwen Darts

Darts should be an Olympic sport and "ticks all the boxes" for inclusion in future Games, according to England's World Cup winning former rugby coach Clive Woodward.

The former British Olympic Association director of elite performance wrote in Wednesday's Daily Mail that darts was growing in popularity worldwide and it was time it "stepped up to the Olympic oche".

It could be a very long wait, however. There are currently 37 officially recognised Olympic sports and darts, a game that has long been played by drinkers in English pubs and bars, is not one of them.

Tokyo, host of the 2020 Games, will have surfing, sport climbing and karate among six new sports included in its Olympics.

Muaythai, a martial art, and cheerleading last month also received provisional recognition as Olympic sports.

"Darts should be an Olympic sport. No, seriously. The world of sport is evolving, the Olympics is evolving and I want to see darts in the Games.

"Easier said than done, but it ticks all the boxes," Woodward said.

"Sport is about people striving to do their best, competing to win while also accepting loss. Darts has all that and much more."

Woodward, who coached the England rugby team from 1997 to 2004 and won the 2003 World Cup, said he had "lapped up" the world darts finals over the Christmas and New Year holiday period.

World number one Michael van Gerwen of the Netherlands won his second PDC World Darts Championship title with a 7-3 victory over Scottish holder Gary Anderson at the Alexandra Palace.

"Darts is a sport of and for the people and that is what the modern-day Olympics is striving very hard to reflect," said Woodward.

"If you made darts an Olympic sport tomorrow, almost overnight millions of men and women from the age of 15 to 65 would suddenly nurture private hopes and ambitions that they could be Olympic champions. It's that accessible."

The Briton said he also loved the sporting entertainment and human drama that darts delivered.

"I've lost track of the number of people who say they first tuned in to darts on TV by mistake and were still there an hour later living every moment. It draws you in," he said.

"At least half the coverage involves close-ups of faces. You can see the mental process, the calculations, the sweat, the stress, the panic and the calming of the nerves."
