According to the world’s top darts players, their secret is that when the game happens, you have to score it yourself. This means that you must first understand the basic scoring method depending on each game. Luckily, scoring in darts is not that complicated.
The dart board has different ranges, the points range from 1 to 20. When you score on the outer ring, points will be counted as double the number on that board ring, the closer it gets to middle rings, the more difficult the game is, but scores will be tripled. Therefore, you should be proficient in each round to score the highest. By knowing this, you will easily plan your strategy by calculating how many points it takes to win and which segment will give you an advantage over your opponents.
Though there will be probabilities when play – possibly due to surroundings, psychology, and circumstances – being prepared to face it will leave you with no regrets whether you win or lose.

3. Perfect your throw

How to throw darts

For the best pitch in darts, you must stay focus on how to accurate your release. This requires 4 elements: stance, posture, grip, and release.
First, you should start to choose an appropriate position. The stance involves accurately positioning the body before making a release. There are three common types of stance: forward stance, lateral stance, and angular stance. The majority of players will use a forward stance to get started, however, we find that this stance is quite difficult to master. This standing position requires taking your dominant foot to be the supporting one, then move forward. The tip of the hind toe will touch the bar and face the dartboard. Such a two-legged posture will help your body comfortably and easily control your pitch.

The second is the party stance. Place your dominant foot forward, near the throw line, the other foot is in the back. Your throw arm and target eye should be in a straight line. Your elbows should stick to your body, this will make your pitch more accurate.

Professional players will always choose a corner. This stance is a combination of lateral stance and forward stance. In this position, your shoulders should be perpendicular to the dartboard, in other words, your shoulders and dartboard will create a 90 degrees angle. Hands should be thrown at ease, eyes, and darts facing the board, keep your feet on the ground when throwing. And done, surely you will have a perfect pitch.

For the left-handed, you just need to switch sides, with our guide, you can throw as well as the right-handers.

4. Higher targeting
