WHAT IS DARTS?
Darts is widely believed to have originated in 1896 and involves two players throwing darts - small, metal sharp-ended missiles from a specified distance, at a cork target called a ‘dartboard’. Whilst the rules vary from game-to-game, players always score points in the same way, by hitting different sections of the dartboard.
DARTS HEALTH BENEFITS
As well as being an enjoyable social experience and a great stress reliever, darts is particularly good for your mental health due to the quick arithmetic required to calculate your scores. Similarly, the game also improves concentration, hand-eye co-ordination and promotes strategic and logical thinking.
COMMON DARTS INJURIES
Although not the most physical of sports, professional darts players can still suffer a variety of strain-based injuries to wrists, forearms, shoulders, hands, fingers and the back. The most common injury suffered is known as ‘throwers elbow’, which is caused by the motion of dart throwing and can develop into a repetitive strain injury if left untreated.
