World disabled darts

by Beau Vernon

Recently I have joined the world disability darts association as a board member. The main man Russell Strobel has come up with the idea of a rotating board (The wildfire 137 dart frame) as shown in the video. It allows people in wheelchairs to compete fairly against able body people by having a board that is lower than the normal height of a dart board.
Being in a chair(especially quadriplegics) I rely on other people to do a lot of things, having the lower dart board allows me to go fetch the darts myself which gives me one more thing to add to the list of things that I can do myself.

If you can not hold a dart then there is another option of the satellite board. This board is suitable for higher levels of quads and higher disabilities. It can also be played by blind people. It is an addictive game one that can be enjoyed by the whole family.
I hope to get a video up soon of the satellite board
