Darts is a sport that requires precision and accuracy. To play darts, you need a dartboard, light, darts, and a regulation measurement of 7ft 9.25 inches (237cm) from the thrower to the face of the board.
The official dartboard height is 5 feet 8 inches (172cm) from the floor to the centre of the bullseye. The throwing line, also known as the oche, is not to be overstepped from the 7ft 9.25 inches (237cm). In amateur and professional competitions, the oche is often raised to reduce the chance of players overstepping the mark and ensuring their feet are firmly planted on the ground. This is the standard distance used in all forms of professional steel tip darts. You are allowed to lean over the line with other parts of your body, but your feet must be behind.
