I started playing serious darts at 14, my family always played darts so when I was old enough, I couldn’t wait to start. I have played for several local teams and currently play for the Match room in Preston.

In 2015 myself and a friend Sydney Flannigan started the Paignton Darts Academy. It’s a club for boys and girls aged from 6 to 18 to learn to play darts. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never thrown a dart or play at county level, we have something for everyone. We play lots of games from the standard 01 games to blind killer and more.

The Academy is affiliated to the Junior Darts Corporation and run there challenge each week. We travel to junior darts tournaments and exhibitions regularly.

Held at the Lime Tree public house on Dartmouth road in a purpose-built room. We meet on Saturday mornings from 10am till 12 noon and on Wednesday evenings from 6pm -7pm.

I love playing darts but loving teaching darts even more and since starting to write about it I find that just as fulfilling.
