Tips for Improving at Darts

Some people just have the gift of accuracy in darts. Others may have to work at it. No matter your skill level, improving your dart game will never hurt. Here are some tips to think about the next time you step into your game room:

Use Your Dominant Eye

When you have the dart board in your sights, but your throw is always off by a few inches, or it doesn’t even reach the board, think about which eye you’re aiming with. Using your dominant eye to sight your dart, you’ll be much more likely to reach the bullseye. Similar to the advice of “keep your eye on the ball,” if you keep your eye on the dart as you locate the board, your hand will follow the path your eyes have created.

Place Your Feet Correctly

Many people might not realize that your stance has a lot of bearing on your dart game. Your back foot should always be an anchor for your body. You don’t want to throw your whole body when you throw a dart, so that back foot will help keep you stationary. Your front foot can change depending on what works best for you. Don’t be afraid to experiment with your stance and throw to find which position provides you with the most accurate game.

Stay Central

When you stand at the oche—the line dart players stand at when playing—be sure to stand as central to the bullseye as you can. If you maintain this spot, you’ll never have to question how your stance is or where you’re throwing each time. When you stay central to the bullseye, along with the above tips, hopefully, your dart game will become stronger every time you play.
