Is playing darts risky?Boy with injury to the head

When set up and played correctly, darts is one of the safest sports you can play. It is considered low risk as it is a non-contact and a low-impact sport. However, that doesn’t mean there is no risk in playing the game. Accidents can still happen that put the players in a dangerous situation and could cause harm. 

The common risks of dart accidents are associated with the sharp dart thrown at the target but accidentally hitting a player. Players can sustain different injuries from being hit by darts. Still, the most severe injuries are wounds in the neck, eyes, or face. These injuries are typically serious and will usually require medical attention. 

 

Darts risk management tactics 

As a coach or organizer of a darts team, tournament, or event, you could be liable for the accidents that happen at your organization. However, regardless of negligence, the injuries sustained could still be deemed your responsibility. Therefore, you need a strategic plan to limit the risks to your players. 

The following are some risk management tactics you can implement to create a safer environment for your players and decrease the chance of preventable injuries:

  • Ensure all patrons are standing behind a line during a game. It is necessary to keep people out of the area where players throw darts.
  • All participants should know the game’s rules before playing; this will help limit errors because of players’ limited knowledge. 
  • Have the players sign a liability waiver to help them know their responsibilities and risk. In addition, it can help to mitigate your business’s liabilities. 
  • Have an employee monitor the game to ensure no foul play and no darts are thrown in proximity to other players or observers. 

The above tactics are significant beginning steps to managing your risks at a dart game, tournament, or other events. In addition, Sadler Sports Insurance offers in-house risk management programs to further increase your risk mitigation knowledge. These programs are resources for you to gain a deeper understanding of how to limit risks.

What is darts?Competitive Dart Board Match

Darts is a competitive sport in which two or more players compete against each other by throwing darts at a round target board. The darts are sharp-pointed weapons that are only a few inches long. Players use techniques to throw the darts with their hands at the board. The dartboard is typically made from vegetable fibre, so the darts can easily stick in the bristles. 

Dartboards consist of a circle with 20 segments numbered from 1 to 20 randomly. Named the bullseye, a small, black circle is in the center of the board. There are two other rings on the board that circle around the bullseye from the bullseye. The first, smaller ring closest to the bullseye is called the 25 rings. The second ring, called the treble right, is located halfway to the board’s edge. 

There are different versions of darts that change the game’s overall objective. For example, there is 501/301, around the clock, cricket, killer, and other types. However, each dart game is based on the players’ accuracy in throwing darts at a dartboard. Therefore, no matter the game type, throwing darts takes skill and technique to win successfully. 

 

Health benefits of playing darts

Darts might be associated with being an activity that is only suitable for those drinking in a pub. However, it has changed into a popular competitive sport over the last few decades. The sport has moved away from the unhealthy associations, which has let the health benefits of darts become more prominent. The game is full of health benefits such as: Practicing darts in the gym
