• Welcome to Darts01.com. Darts Information website.


Darts01 is a UK dart information website, covering a number of aspects relating to darts. Here you will find information as regards the history of the sport and dartboards used over time. It is a general information website that has been well researched that I hope all dart players regardless of level can enjoy.

If you are just looking for some basic ‘01 rules or games you can play on a standard dartboard then there should be enough on here to whet your appetite. If you just want to know how to set-up your standard dartboard or looking for information on some of the UK regional dartboards then again you have found the right place for this information.

New players may like to take a look at the darts checkout page where you can download and print a ’01 checkout chart for your own use. These are useful when you are starting to learn the game and can help you memorise two and three dart combination finishes. If you are a disabled player then I have some resource information on this website that you might find useful. This includes the dartboard set-up for a wheelchair user and a copy of the disability regulations. There are also links to the World Disability Darts Association and the British Disability Darts Association on the disability darts page.

Players that want to improve their games might like the section ‘Practice’. Here you will find some guidelines on how to improve your throw, accuracy and checkouts. However, as the heading states ‘Practice’ is the key.

Over the years of playing darts and researching the game, I have come across a number of articles that have not been researched correctly. Basically, information that has been provided with good intent but is in fact wrong. I hope to cover a lot of the facts and myths on this website and address a number of the FAQ that has plagued the sport for many a year.

This website is not about giving you the latest stats on players as this is well covered on the main darts governing bodies websites and dedicated dart players information websites. However, if you are looking for find previous major tournament winners including the events such as the News of the World individual Championships that is no longer played, then you will find them here

The news section covers some of the major tournaments due to be played or played depending when you read it.

Viewers may find some of this information featured on this website also appears on some of the other dart websites I write. However, each of the websites is unique in their own way, whether it is a player’s website or a dart information website.

Please enjoy the website.

Rest in Peace Keith Shone - Pure Darts

I received very sad news from Nicola Shone that her father, Keith Shone, passed away on Monday 19th April. Many players would have known Keith over the past fifty-plus years as a player but also a legend in the sport of darts.

If you were unlucky not to meet Keith, you might well have had business dealing with him via Tommy's Darts International , Pure Darts or the Darts Super Store. Keith started his very successful darts distribution business in the 1970s and has thousands of loyal customers. His business supplied darts equipment to amateur, professional players, many clubs, bars, pubs across the UK and around the World.

Keith was a true darts fan and encouraged everyone that picked up an arrow. He was a workaholic even when his health didn't permit such exertion. He was also a big supporter of Darts501.com / Darts-UK.co.uk and Darts01.com as these sites give unbiased darts information, which mirrored his love for the sport.

Keith would be proud to see his business left in his daughter Nicola's excellent and capable hands. Nicola has worked with her father for over twenty, and she has informed me she will be continuing to run and develop the family business for years to come. The one thing I can assure readers that the work ethic Keith installed into his family will continue, and I wish you all to support Nicola and her small dedicated team in the years to come.

Pure Darts is open for business, but due to the COVID restrictions, phone orders are currently not being taken. Please use their online order form, and if you can not find what you are looking for, please send them an email.

I wish to convey my condolences to Keith's family.

RIP Keith, a true dart legend and friend.
