Anyone play darts?

Just wondering if anyone plays for their local pub team and in which district league?

Our Burnley district league starts tonight, looking forward to no longer being bored on a thursday evening.

Looking at the fixtures we've also got a premier league team in the knockout cup - we are going to get demolished, one of their players hit a 9 darter and a 170 checkout last season - hope I don't play against him!!

EDIT: My mistake, it was an 11 darter and a 160 checkout by different people - that's a weight off my mind haha.

I only started playing because I was bored of just sitting down and drinking in the pub waiting for the pool table to come free. Since I started playing I'm hooked. Hit some pretty good darts after a few pints aswell which I'm happy about lol.

Ahh, not sure but the BDDL contains teams in the Burnley, Padiham and Brierfield areas. Surely theres a local division in Preston?

Just for fun with mates in the pub. The league takes place on a Friday night and I already have other plans on Fridays.

can you hit 180's? or high scores consistently, I can only get 100 or so occasionally lol, used to be pretty solid and checking out on double 10 though

I used to be, fooled everyone on holiday that I couldn't play & got 3 triple 19's hah

No pubs around my area really have teams now, which is a shame, everyone mucks around on the nearest pub dartboard!

Just got back....our team won 5-2. I won my game 2-0. Not bad for the first league game of the season, usually its pretty close but we'd won at 4-2.
