The Albany's Darts Team

The first recorded game of darts was in Dartford (hence its name). The dartboard itself may have its origins in the cross section of a tree. An old name for a dartboard is a 'butt', and from this, folk etymology infers that the bottoms of wine barrels were the original dartboards; this word in fact comes, via archery, from the French word butte, meaning target.

Where we play

The Club's dartboard is now a permanent fixture in our Lounge. Here you can have your game relatively undisturbed away from the main bar. There are facilities for both blackboard and electronic scoring, and there's plenty of room for spectators.

Our Team

We have a darts team representing the Club who play in the Chapelfields League. They play on Wednesday evenings.

Our facilities are first rate and we'd be very interested in anyone forming a new team or an established team looking to relocate. Mens, Ladies and mixed teams welcome.

Age restrictions do not apply playing darts at the club although this may not be the case at away venues.

The club has established banking facilities for sports teams to use and teams are offered dedicated pages just like this one on our website regularly updated with fixtures, results, photos and contact information.
