One of the most popular pub games in the UK http://www.teamnhlcapitalsshop.com/brooks-orpik-jersey/ , darts is a game that is fast becoming popular with people the world over. What is important is not who plays the game, but how the game is played. When it comes to darts its not just about the 18 inch circular board, its more about how people have gathered in pubs and bars all over the UK and come together to play darts.
If this is the first time you have come across the game of darts then don?t worry, darts is a very simple game. A dart board is a circular board with various scoring zones marked out on it. Apart from the centre of the board (also referred to as the ?bulls eye?) the standard dartboard is divided into 20 numbered sections, scoring from 1 to 20 points http://www.teamnhlcapitalsshop.com/brett-connolly-jersey/ , by wires running from the small central circle to the outer circular wire. Circular wires within the outer wire subdivide each section into single, double and triple areas. Darts is a great way to improve your concentration and hand eye co-ordination.
Scoring in the game of darts is a little more complex, and there are more than one ways in which a person can score points. However the basic rules are pretty much the same, the bulls eye is further divided into the inner bull and the outer bull. Any dart that lands in the inner bull gets 50 points, and in the outer bull it gets 25 points. In addition the board is further divided into green and red strips. However the most points a person can score in darts is not from three bulls eyes http://www.teamnhlcapitalsshop.com/braden-holtby-jersey/ , surprisingly if a person manages to land 3 consecutive darts in the green strips, he is awarded 180 marks and this is called a ?triple?. In fact, if you have ever watched a darts game and wondered why players are aiming for the thin green strips instead of the inner bull this is why. There are numerous variations to the game of darts, and depending on the understanding between the players and the referees N number of combinations can be tried out.
The British were the first to popularise darts as a professional sport, and the British Darts Organisation (BDO) was formed in 1973 and later became a member of the World Darts Foundation (which incidentally was founded after the BDO in 1976). In 1992 a break away organisation called the WDC (World darts council) was formed and was later renamed the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC).
Today the PDC and the WDF both hold independent world championships http://www.teamnhlcapitalsshop.com/andre-burakovsky-jersey/ , and players from all over the world compete in these competitions. The most successful darts player ever Phil Taylor (13 time world champion) is now a part of the PDC and is expected to be joined by other world darts players. Both the PDC and the WDF world championships are extremely popular in the UK and other European countries. If you want to play darts professionally, then a good learning ground is watching both the world championships.

CANBERRA, Jan. 13 (Xinhua) -- Tennis Australia's attempt to revolutionize the sport with its new, abbreviated Fast4 format unveiled on Australian free-to-air television on Monday night via a Roger Federer exhibition turned out to be not so much an ace as a rather lame double fault.

The game's governing body had a great opportunity to revamp the staid old sport and win over a new generation of supporters, in the same way that Twenty20 cricket has enlivened the traditional forms of the game http://www.teamnhlcapitalsshop.com/alexander-ovechkin-jersey/ , but instead it served up a lukewarm compromise. Rather than a tennis revolution, it created a storm in a teacup.

Yes, they have tinkered at the edges of the sport by shortening the match to four games per set, with no tie-breaks, no advantages once at deuce http://www.teamnhlcapitalsshop.com/alex-ovechkin-jersey/ , no service lets and no breaks in play between games, but they've fallen well short of the total overhaul they could have made. The kind of bells-and-whistles, all-action spectacular that has helped make Twenty20s such a hit with younger cricket fans.

Monday night's inaugural Fast4 contest between 17-time Grand Slam champion Federer and Australian Lleyton Hewitt in Sydney felt contrived and devoid of atmosphere, despite the players' efforts to whip up some energy inside the Sydney Entertainment Center.

It was the first time tennis fans had seen the new concept, so allowances have to be made for that and the novelty of the format http://www.teamnhlcapitalsshop.com/t-shirts/ , as well as the fact Tennis Australia has said the driving force behind the changes is a need to speed up the game for time-poor, part-time players.

But, for all that, Federer's five-set victory was met with a sense of bewilderment and slightly empty feeling: where was the sizzle we'd been promised in all the promotional campaigns?

Whereas Twenty20 cricket introduced new rules in relation to both fielding restrictions and the laws of the game, enabling contests to be far more attacking with an increased number of runs http://www.teamnhlcapitalsshop.com/hoodie/ , the creators of Fast4 have failed to think outside the tramlines in terms of how to attract new viewers.

From the outside, it appears there has been no concerted effort to apply new rules as a means of enticing more people to attend.

However, there are a number of ways in which tennis authorities can make the game more exciting and, ultimately, more appealing to the increased audiences they crave.

First and foremost http://www.teamnhlcapitalsshop.com/customized/ , it needs to encourage positive stroke play with risk-and-reward rules, in a similar manner to T20 cricket.

A means of achieving this could include a change to the scoring system, rewarding players with additional points for winners, subsequently promoting attacking styles, rather than relying on unforced errors.

A change to court sizes http://www.teamnhlcapitalsshop.com/ , different varieties of balls used and a limit on shots-per-point are other suggestions as to how tennis could develop a new format.

As things stand, Fast4 fails to offer its audience an enhancement of the traditional game and, while crowds may have flocked to see Federer and Hewitt on Monday night, it will be interesting to see whether they do so again in the future.
