Adding a practice game to our coaching clinic blogs has proved popular. The game was sent to us by one of the memebrs of our darts improvement site, James, so a bight thanks to him !
How to Play:
The "Splitz" are:
20 / 10
18 / 9
16 / 8
14 / 7
10 / 5
8 / 4
6 / 3
2 / 1
You start the game by going for Double 20 with your first dart. Hit or miss second dart is at Double 10 and hit or miss third dart is back to double 20.
On your next throw you repeat the sequence but going 18 then 9 then back to 18
Work your way through the rest of the "Splitz".
Scoring - 1 point for every double you hit
You can adapt the game to go for the "fat numbers" or the trebles. It is a great game to play with a partner or set yourself a target score and try to beat your personal best if playing solo.
We like the rhythm aspect of going from the fat number to the double, let's face up to reality you don't always hit the double first dart do you? So we are not practising to miss the double we are practising getting the rhythm from fthe at number to the next double in sequence. That is realisitic practice!
