Due to the large number of customer enquiries regarding correct dartboard setup, we decided to include the following information and diagram showing the standard measurements for correct dartboard setup.
Height from centre of Bull to the Ground
Setup the dartboard height to measure 5 Feet 8 Inches from the centre of the dartboard (the centre of the bull) to the ground. The height can also be measured as 68 inches, 1.73 meters or 173 centimetres.
Distance from the ground to the Oche
Setup the dartboard throwing distance to measure 7 Feet 9 and a quarter inch from the front of the dartboard to the front of the Oche (Throwing Line). The throwing distance can also be measures as 93.25 inches, 2.37 meter or 237 centimetres.
Distance from centre of Bull to the Oche
After your dartboard has completely been setup, it is a good idea to measure the distance from the centre of the bull to the oche throwing line) to make 100% sure all measurements are correct. If this distance shows to be 9 Feet 6 Inches then you know your dartboard was setup correctly. The distance from the centre of the bull to the throwing line can also be measured as 115.35 Inches, 2.93 meter or 293 centimetres.
Ladies throwing distance!
Quite often the question concerning the throwing distance for ladies arises. So what's the answer? Generally the throwing distance is the same as that for men, however there are many dart leagues in the UK that differ. For example 7' 6" & 7' 0".
Wheelchair Dartboard Setup
Normally the official dartboard height for a standing player is 173cm ( centre of bull ), however Russ Strobel the founder of the WDDA have been successful in gaining official recognition that an equal and fair dartboard height for a wheelchair player is 137cm ( centre of bull ).
The use of these wheelchair setup guidelines have been approved by the WDF to be used in all WDF sanctioned events where the Wildfire 137 dart frame concept is used.
The revolutionary Wildfire 137 dart frame was specifically designed to afford wheelchair players the opportunity to compete directly with standing players. The WDDA have also developed The Satellite, which caters for those with an even wider range of disabilities.
