Tell us about the beginning of your interest in darts.  My boyfriend at the time played with his friends when we went out; and rather than just sit I joined in.  I have been playing ever since.  I joined the league about 7 years ago, we formed an all girls team(tons of fun but not very good—- we didn’t care then and still don’t).  I have since been on winning teams with the boys, but prefer a girls team for the fun.

 

In which league(s) do you play?            Just Combo this season.

 

How far from home do you play?          Home bar 1miles. The fartherest is about 8-10 miles

 

How many days per week do you engage in darts?        Average of 2-3 nights

 

What kind of darts do you use: weight/ brand?  I believe 16 g?? Brand??

 

What other activity/sport do you participate in or watch?  Football & Scrap booking

 

What is the most annoying antic you see from other dart players?  When the “boys” actually strategize against our team(mind you our team average is about a 1.7 / 13.0), instead of just playing the game and enjoying it.  Also, when new players just assume that being a girl means we don’t what to shoot.  We know the game; we just don’t take it as seriously!

 

Is league night too long, too short, just right?       Just right.

 

On which team(s) do you play? Da Girls

 

How do you pick a team to play on?  Level of Fun

 

Which other family members play?        My husband and his oldest son

 

Tell us about conflicts darts create in home or work life?  When I worked the occasional hang over wasn’t pleasant.

Also, my husband and I were on the same team—- we will not be doing that again.  He plays a very serious game and darts is never worth an argument…. Plus this way, we both get a night out with friends.

 

What goals in darts do you have?  I am always trying to improve, and will set season goal for my average; however after 7 years…..fun seems to be my biggest achievement when it comes to dart league

 

What has been your best moment in darts?  I shot an average of a 3.0 in a play off game and my team came in first….. mind you, the other team heckled me relentlessly how I was a dead weight and that my captain should even let me play.     Victory is sometimes very sweet!

 

What’s your advice to a newbie dart player?  Go out for fun and you will really enjoy the game! Do your best, and avoid the drama!
