For many sports fans, watching their favourite game or their favourite team playing while cracking open a cold one is one of the best leisure activities ever. If you happen to be one of those fans that like to go an extra mile, you might find a promo from Betfred useful for spicing things up and having an additional reason to cheer for your team.
However, what happens if there are no games, or at least none you want to watch? What happens if the weather’s just perfect and inviting? Well, football darts, that’s what! Oh, you’ve never played it before? Not to worry, we’ll tell you all about it.
No Darts Required
The game of football darts is one of the newest trends that’s taking over the world by the storm. Even though the idea is ingenious, there’s nothing incredibly unique about it, as the game combines two different sports activities — you’ve guessed it, football and darts; or soccer and darts, depending on where you hail from. The game was invented by Foot Sports UK, a company based in — you’re going to love this — Dartford. Even if the company’s hometown didn’t have a dart in their name, you’d still be in for a treat playing this fantastic game.
How Do You Play Football Darts?
The game of football darts includes a giant 22-feet high inflatable board which has the same layout as a regular darts board. However, instead of throwing darts with their hands, players use their feet and footballs made of Velcro that stick to the board. Warm up, aim, shoot and go for the bullseye!
The scoring system is the same as it is with regular darts, and the numbers are clearly indicated around the giant board. You can play against your friends, or you can even play in teams, it’s all up to you. Matter of fact, if you enjoy the game that much, you can even play by yourself and practice before your next meetup with friends.
Why Football Darts Over Regular Darts?
Simple — because it’s more fun! We’re not saying darts aren’t fun, but football darts is the new kid on the block; it’s fresh and new and exciting. Not only that, but football darts can also be good exercise. A game of darts is much more static while the new variance of a popular game will even make you break a sweat.
So there you have it; everything that you needed to know about football darts. The game is relatively new so you might not be able to find the giant boards in your area, but make sure to keep your eyes peeled if you are as excited about it as we are!
