Dart History | Brief History of Dart Board Game
Henry VIII of England and Charles VI in France were loves of arrows.
The Pilgrims Parents, immigrants Huguenots, who initiated 1620 for America on Mayflower, are supposed to play on the ship a game approaching the current dartboard. Should we look for the cradle in Britain? True he is still generally English shooters, and can train in the winter, developed a new series to allow a title to keep fit: for a wooden wall hanging at the hostel, they would have had no idea to reduce the size of their actions to throw them in hand… the arrows are bor.
Also, new darts are strongly linked to English bars. it was thought that access to the center of the target (called “Bull eye”) with arrows was only lucky. However, with the satisfaction of the English court, a Leeds lodge in 1908 showed that it was a question of title.
Since then, darts have been accepted as a popular sport and social activity. Courses are held in all countries, and millions of people around the world enjoy this game. Although the game of darts has been mentioned in various writings of the Middle Ages, no one knows for sure the origins. So the assumptions are numerous. Historians report that the English victors of the French at the battle of AZINCOURT in 1415 practiced at Darts. Drawing by LEONARD OF VINCI (1452-1514) show us the original darts conceived by him. At the court of the kings of England, the game of Darts was one of the favorite hobbies of TUDOR. EN 1534 ANNE BOLEYN offered her husband HENRI VIII a darts finely chiseled by the Spanish master of Biscay. It is supported that the PILGRIMS FEATHERS, emigrants HUGUENOTS, who is 1620 embarked on the MAYFLOWER for the new world, America, played on board a game approaching the current darts. It is also admitted that hunters in the English plains, unable to hunt properly in winter, given the scarcity of game, invented to be able to train during the winter period a game of skill to keep fit. Having suspended a target cut from a log, they would have had the idea to reduce the size of the arrows to throw them by hand
DARTS WAS NE!!! the researcher PATRICK CHAPLIN thanks to his research on the subject, tells us a title more. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word DARTE is mentioned in works dating form 1314, 1330 and 1374. We find its trace “official” beginning of the 19th century, the darts was played by the small people from the working class and was considered by the better- off courses as an unhealthy occupation and detrimental to proper development.
In 1908, the darts went to the dock, should we consider darts as a game of luck or not! It was up to the LEEDS court to decide. The story tells us a pub owner, made a demonstration in front of the court, and the player threw his three arrows in the double 20 (surely one of my ancestors, hm..hm). In front of the dumbfounded audience has begun again to prove that it was not luck, and his three arrows ended still their race in the double 20. The board amazed and admired decided that the darts wan, not a game of chance but of address. For the darts, it was a step and a massive step towards total acceptance of the darts first as a game and later as sports.
The current numbering system and the dot areas (double, triple, bull, ) represented on the darts target were designer by BRAIN GAMELIN, a carpenter from LANCASHIRE, who after cutting a slice of wood in a log, noticed that the drawn trees life rings formed a natural and smooth separation, and he conceived the current system known to all darts players. Later, the targets were made of pig-pressed hairs because the wood was cracking fast enough. Now the goals are in sisal, a material that closes behind the hole left by the arrow when it is removed from the target.
In 1906 it is about the 1st arrow with a metal point on which is still mounted a shaft in wood. In 1937, Frank LOWY, an Englishman of Hungarian origin, inventor of his condition, sketched the Metal arrow- tip and barred, as we know it now and developed the concept by creating his own company under the name of UNICORN; company that still manufactures arrows flights, shafts and all materials, different styles of the greatest happiness of the darts. At home, were the English soldiers during the second world war, who made us discover the game darts, it has expanded over the years to take off in the current of the 80s finally.
