The New Zealand Darts Council is one of the oldest national darts organisations which still exists - it was founded already in 1955 and is since
then responsible for the sport of Darts in New Zealand.
The NZDC was one of the founder members of the WDF and probably dominated in the beginning by English Immigrants who brought the sport to New
Every Dart Organisation in New Zealand can join the Darts Council.
The NZDC organises several ranking tournaments. Some of those are open for everybody, some are only for members and a part of both kinds of
tournaments counts for the WDF ranking - the most important are the New Zealand open plaed since 1983 and the New Zealand Masters played since 1992.
The NZDC organises a U 24 Championship and a Youth Championship.
The Darts Council has divided New Zealand in 16 regions all with an own board. Once a year all meet.
For the Darts Council coaching is an important area of the sport of darts and there exist trained coaches. On the homepage you can even find
a "Beginners Guide to Coaching".
Puma, a dart manufacturer from New Zealand, is patron of the New Zealand Darts Council.
