Almost everyone has their own method of preparation and practice for any game involving physical activity, including darts.
I thought I would share some of my habits as I get a bit more serious about the quality of my game. In this post I’ll describe my first throws when I step up to a dart board either in practice or before playing. Feel free to give them a try and let me know if they help your game.
This practice routine is a quick dozen throws you can do in a few minutes and should help you get in range for scoring and doubling out while also preparing to “diddle for the middle” at the beginning of the game.
Step up to the oche; get into your stance; and, prepare to throw.
- Throw three darts at the red bull, twice.
- Throw three darts at the treble twenty, twice.
- Throw three darts at the double twenty, twice.
- Throw three darts at the double sixteen, twice.
- Throw three darts at the treble sixteen, twice.
- End with three more darts at the red bull, twice.
There you have it. You’ve practiced some good scoring trebles; some common outs; and, you focused on the bull’s eye preparing you for the start of your game … or, a great out!
You’re ready to win!
