For people
new to darts

For lots of us, our first experience of playing or watching darts is at the pub, or catching a PDC tournament on TV. But what if you want to hone your new skill in the privacy of home? Or invite your mates around for a laugh and a bit of healthy competition. In that case, you’ll be wanting to get your own set up sorted. Preferably by the weekend.

As a newbie, choosing which darts to buy feels a bit like choosing a car – there’s a lot of choice at both ends of the spectrum, and you want to make sure you’re getting a kit that feels comfortable, and just right.

Step 1
your Dart

Here’s our suggestions for the best darts for beginners, perfect for getting your game on.

Step 2
your Dartboard

Top Tip
Add a lightweight surround to your dartboard, your walls will thank you.

Step 3
Set up your
Dart Arena

Here’s all you need for a ‘full noise’ dart lane set up at home.

Your dartboard setup should be an area where you can throw darts safely – and play for hours with friends, or practise in stealth to bust out the moves later. Luckily, creating a fantastic darting space isn’t tricky, piggy-bank-breaking or time-consuming.
