Darts01 is a UK dart information website, covering a number of aspects relating to darts. Here you will find information as regards the history of the sport and dartboards used over time. It is a general information website that has been well researched that I hope all dart players regardless of level can enjoy.
If you are just looking for some basic ‘01 rules or games you can play on a standard dartboard then there should be enough on here to whet your appetite. If you just want to know how to set-up your standard dartboard or looking for information on some of the UK regional dartboards then again you have found the right place for this information.
New players may like to take a look at the darts checkout page where you can download and print a ’01 checkout chart for your own use. These are useful when you are starting to learn the game and can help you memorise two and three dart combination finishes. If you are a disabled player then I have some resource information on this website that you might find useful. This includes the dartboard set-up for a wheelchair user and a copy of the disability regulations. There are also links to the World Disability Darts Association and the British Disability Darts Association on the disability darts page.
Players that want to improve their games might like the section ‘Practice’. Here you will find some guidelines on how to improve your throw, accuracy and checkouts. However, as the heading states ‘Practice’ is the key.
Over the years of playing darts and researching the game, I have come across a number of articles that have not been researched correctly. Basically, information that has been provided with good intent but is in fact wrong. I hope to cover a lot of the facts and myths on this website and address a number of the FAQ that has plagued the sport for many a year.
This website is not about giving you the latest stats on players as this is well covered on the main darts governing bodies websites and dedicated dart players information websites. However, if you are looking for find previous major tournament winners including the events such as the News of the World individual Championships that is no longer played, then you will find them here
The news section covers some of the major tournaments due to be played or played depending when you read it.
Viewers may find some of this information featured on this website also appears on some of the other dart websites I write. However, each of the websites is unique in their own way, whether it is a player’s website or a dart information website.
Please enjoy the website.
