DARTS

About Gauteng Darts Federation:

The Gauteng Darts Federation is a non-profit sports organization and the funds that we generate through competitions and membership fees are used to fund players who represent the Province at National competitions, as well as purchasing of trophies and medals for achievements.

 

As part of our development plan we are trying to promote the sport by having various exhibitions at schools, universities and shopping malls.

 

Darts is a form of a throwing game in which small missiles are thrown at a circular target (dartboard) fixed to a wall. Though various boards and rules have been used in the past, the term "darts" usually now refers to a standardized game involving a specific board design and set of rules. As well as being a professional competitive sport.

Darts scoring is prescribed  for the matches most people will play. This is a standard version of the game where players must start and finish with a Double scoring dart. The score to begin is 501. Players’ scores are deducted from 501 with the aim being to finish the game as fast as possible, scoring a Double on the last dart to make the score 0.

 

All ages and genders are welcome to join the darts family. We have local clubs in all municipal areas of Gauteng. The aim is to take the sport to the previously disadvantaged areas and also promote the sport amongst the disabled players.

 

As part of our commitment to the promotion of the sport we encourage people with disabilities to form part of the sport. Currently we have 12 registered disabled players within the Gauteng Darts Federation.
