Players play darts individually, one-on-one, or in teams of two. Teams of one or two persons typically comprise dart leagues. If you are looking to start your own dart league, it is important that you take the time to schedule it properly. You want to ensure that each team plays every other team at least once during the season. Use a blank calendar to organize who plays whom during the dart season.
Advertise that you are starting a dart league. Pass around a sign-up sheet to gauge how many people are interested.
Organize the people on the sign-up sheet into teams. If enough people sign up, consider comprising your league of teams of two.
Print out blank calendars for the months that comprise your dart league seasons. Seasons can last a few weeks to a few months depending on the interest level.
Choose a day or a series of days to host games. On the game days, write in a “home team” and a “visitor team.” Start sequentially with team 1 playing team 2 and so on for the first matches. Next week, have team 1 play team 3 and team 2 play team 4 and so on for each team. Continue this way for each week until each team plays every other team at least once.
Copy the schedule and pass it out to the teams.
Crowsdarts.com provides some sample schedules based on the number of teams in a league. Use these charts to help you fill in the teams on your blank calendars.
