The Darts As A Sport sign now

We believe UK government regulator, Sport England, should recognise darts as a sport in the UK. We also urge governments worldwide to recognise the game as a bona fide sport.
Darts is a game of skill with huge global support. It requires physical endurance, dexterity, skill and hand-eye coordination at the highest level. It is also a sport which can be enjoyed on an equal footing by men, women and children, the young, the old and people of disability. It is also a sport with a low cost-of-entry, making it widely accessible to a huge population.
History shows that darts emerged from an English law that required regular practice at using the bow, meaning that darts is itself derived from another skill that is now recognised as a sport.
For these reasons and more we urge Sports England to recognise our game as a sport in hope of global recognition for darts.

    Darts has got to be recognised as a sport because it is a game of skill and precision. If archery is recognised as a sport then why not darts.

    I am a fan of many sports. I am an avid supporter of Sunderland AFC and they have given me many highs as well as lows. But I see no difference in the competive nature and preperation required of DARTS to that of football. If DARTS is not a sport then I ne
