When playing any type of games on a dart board, the set-up of the board and oche needs to be exactly correct. Dart board regulations must be followed in order to make it fair for all players. Having an incorrect set up can also effect a players ability to practice efficiently.
The dartboard should hang on a flat wall, so the centre of the bullseye is 1.73 metres or 5′ 8″ from the floor. The number 20 should be at the top and the number 3 at the bottom.
Oche mats will have a number of distances marked out on them but games should be played from a distance of 2.73 metres or 7′ 9 ¼ “.
This is the distance used in all the professional tournaments on television and in amateur leagues. Check out the below image for a visual representation of the above.
