Guide


Welcome to TalkDarts

Welcome to Talk Darts - the new home of Darts on the web. The site is currently under development but we are proud to say that the guide to Darts is up and available

Darts is a traditional pub sport but these days there are thriving professional tours and the top players make a lot of money and are household names. Rosie Langford takes you through the sport in our guide and tells you all need to know about the professional tour as well as how to improve your game and some of the equipment that you'll need.

Equipment & Techniques

Not every player uses the same Darts - they can be different weights and different lengths, they can even be made of different materials. To check out all the different equipment that you can use then check out the darts equipment of our Darts guide.

Whilst most people just look at the sport as a bunch of slightly overweight guys playing in a pub - Darts professionals have to be fit otherwise they won't function and perform to their upmost. For tips on how to keep fit and to improve your techniques then check out the page on our guide.

Fans of the sport are used to the words of Sid Waddell but if you are wondering what he is going on about half the time then check out our language section of the guide.
