Darts is a game with a long tradition for both professional or recreational sport. The first games were played in the English-speaking world. The game was originally used for the training of warfare skills. Later the game of darts moved to the taverns where people competed against each other rather than on the battlefield. The standard numbering plan which is still used today, was created in 1896 by the English carpenter Brian Gamlin. Darts were formerly made of wood. The first model made of metal was produced in 1906. In 1908 the game of darts was officially registered as a game of skill.

Basics – material, form und parts of a dart
Each dart consists of 4 parts:
Each individual element can be designed differently. Differences occur not only in material but also in the shape and design.
The important function of the flight is to stabilize the path of a dart in the air. In former times flights were made of feathers or paper, today they are manufactured from synthetic materials with textile structure or polyester. Especially professionals rely on the former as the material is a little more robust and therefore more durable. It is recommended that beginners use bigger flights. Professionals, however, prefer to play with the smaller models as they allow three darts to fit at the same time in a field. Flights have many different forms, such as kite, slim, v-wing or diamond. There are no limits to the motifs and colours of the designs.
A plastic shaft is optimal as it is not only lightweight but also rather robust. This material is suitable for both beginners and professionals. The shaft can also consist of spring steel, titanium or aluminum.
This gripping part forms the centerpiece of the dart and is crucial for the characteristic of the flight. They are made of brass, steel or tungsten alloy. The barrel is the main part of the dart whereas the flight and tip only improve the flying characteristics.
The choice of tip depends basically on the board which is being used. Plastic tips can only be used with electronic boards whereas in the case of steel darts, sisal boards and tips made of metal are used. A little tip: If there is no metal tip on hand for the steel dart, a plastic tip can also be used. This just has to be filed with a nail file at the front end so that it can also enter the sisal board.
The game – distance, rules, etc.
Once the dart board is chosen, darts and accessories ordered online or are on the way, the necessary precautions for the game can be taken. For those wanting to play conforming to professional requirements, the following distances should be held:
