Stand and deliver: check your stance, hit your target

Stand and deliver: check your stance, hit your target

There’s plenty of advice out there about how to throw a dart – grip, finger placement etc. But how you stand also has a huge impact on your overall darts game. In this post, we’ll take a look at the factors that go into getting your stance right to throw right.
Confidence: the secret sauce of top darts players

Confidence: the secret sauce of top darts players

Confidence. It's hard to teach and tricky to learn. It’s intimidating and from a distance, it can look like arrogance. But rather than loud bravado, true confidence is a quiet, strong self-belief that’s your secret sauce for winning at any level of the darts game.  
Play it forward: helping and teaching other players

Play it forward: helping and teaching other players

There’s that old saying: ‘Those who can, do, and those who can’t, teach.’ We’re calling BS on that right now, because we reckon in darts ‘Those who can, do, but those who teach, do the game a favour.’

So, where do you start with teaching other players, and what do they need to know first, versus what they’ll learn through practice and experience?

Guarantee the Shot: how to hit your target every time

My tip may seem an obvious one, but over the many years of travelling the 'circuit' and playing pro darts, it’s amazing how many players do not do it. I myself have been guilty of such rash throwing, but I now follow this basic rule, ‘guarantee the shot’.”

Sounds easy when Matt ‘Superman’ Clark says it, aye? Wouldn’t it be great if us mere mortals could be sure of consistently nailing it? In this post, Matt gives us the skinny on his strategy to guarantee the shot (more often than not).
