The sport’s biggest event, the World Professional Darts Championship,  will be held from December 15 2023-January 3 2024, as 96 players compete for the Sid Waddell Trophy and £2.5 million in prize money.

On top of that, this is probably one of the most fun (and drunk) crowds in all of sports.

Although darts are available in a wide range of weights (from 18 – 40 grams), the majority of players throw with darts weighing 18 – 23 grams when using brass, and 23 – 26 grams when using tungsten. The legal weight limit of the major overseeing organizations is 50 grams.

The different types of darts you can choose from may be made from, brass, nickel, silver, or tungsten. Each material offers the player a different weight, grip, shaft, and flights.
