Dart board measurements

Dart board measurements – important information for anyone who plays darts

The dimensions of dart boards are usually listed on the board itself, but you can find them here too just to be sure.

Dart Board Dimensions:

Note: the bullseye is actually a small circle that has a larger ring around it. The end of the dart must always be on the board surface and inside this ring to count as a score.

A single bedroom dartboard measures  15 inches in diameter;

A standard cricket dartboard measures 18 inches in diameter; and

A double bed dartboard measures  20 inches in diameter.

Note that these measurements are approximate to 0.1mm. So if you measure something and think it should be slightly different then it probably is. Also, it is usually the case that there will be small changes in an older board so if you are replacing one for any reason then be sure to check it first.

Take a minute to think about where you will place your dart board and who the target audience will be and, most importantly, make sure that your rules and regulations can be enforced with any new measurements you take on board. Asking questions before buying is probably the easiest way to avoid any problems.

So, what are some of the different measurements that might be required by a dart board? Well, as you have read above, there are some standard sizes to choose from and depending on where you play darts at home – some areas need more precise measurements. So…

Dart Board Wall Placement:

A new homeowner wants to put up a dart board in his new house – what are the requirements?

The most obvious thing to consider is where he is going to put it. If it is on an internal wall, then there are no real limitations apart from the size of the room and the player count. But if he plans on putting it on an outside wall, then the measurements are slightly more critical.

The dart board should be at least 12 feet above ground level and clear of any obstructions, i.e. windows etc., but also at least 8 feet away from any footpath or road that is within 25 feet of where it will be placed. If this is not possible then the dart board must be shielded from impact by a steel plate of approximately 4mm thick.

See! Not as simple as you thought it would be, is it? If you are unsure then this new player might want some help from an expert or from the local council before he makes that first throw.

I hope that answers your question without you having to go through all of the pain and heartache that can come from a badly hung dart board. So, with the help of this article you will be sure not to make any costly errors with your measurements.

I started darting about 4 years ago when my friend had some darts in the office. He used to throw them when he got bored and I joined.

Since then, I’ve been progressing and learning more about this wonderful game. I participated in a bunch of tournaments, and I also won first places and nice prizes.

The site was built with the goal of helping beginners as well as experienced players find information and to answer any and all questions they might have.
