Darts - Dart Board Distance

Darts - Dart Board Distance: "Darts is usually contested between two players usually playing a certain amount of legs, in which they have to reduce their score from 501 (or 301) to zero. The players take turns to throw three darts at a time. The last dart in the leg must hit either a double or the bullseye and must reduce the score to exactly zero. Sometimes matches are decided by who wins the most sets, each containing an odd number of legs."

Of the two professional organisations, the British Darts Organisation (BDO), founded 1973), is the oldest. Its tournaments are often shown on the BBC in the UK, and on SBS6 in the Netherlands. The BDO is a member of the World Darts Federation (WDF) (founded 1976), alongside with organisations in some 60 other countries worldwide. the BDO organises all British darts players, with the exception of a small group of professionals.

In the 1994 a breakaway organisation was formed, influenced by Sky Television, currently known as the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC) - in the Netherlands often televised by RTL5.

While the PDC tournaments often have a higher prize money, critics would say they are less prestigious than those organised by its traditional counterpart, the BDO."

Darts Scoring

Points are awarded for hitting the various sections.

Hitting a white or black section gives points equal to the number aligned to that section (1 to 20).
Hitting the outer red or green sections is worth double points.
Hitting the red or green section inside that is worth triple points.
The outer ring in the centre of the board is worth 25 points.
The inner ring (also known as "The Bull" or "Bullseye") is worth 50 points.
Hitting outside the layer of doubles merits no points.
If the dart does not remain in the dartboard (i.e. it bounces or falls out) then no points are scored.
