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.

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".
