Speed Darts!

Just a flying catch-up!

We had a cup game 2 weeks ago, playing away against the Ex Service A – i.e an A league team! The format was doubles and singles only and first to five won. As expected, we very quickly achieved our 0-5 loss and could have an early night 😉

Last week we were at home against The Heart and we won! 7-4 to us! We won both trebles games, Roger Snr and I lost our doubles but the others all won, and Billy, Simon and I lost our singles but Roger, Roger and Paul won theirs. My own darts were bad in trebles as ever, but OK in doubles. I threw well in the singles and was going strong until I had a run of five turns in the middle where I was hitting 1’s and 5’s instead of 20’s, allowing my opponent to catch up and then beat me to the finish. A little frustrating but a good game.

I’ve been wondering why my darts have been so near-but-so-far lately and I can’t believe I didn’t realise the cause before! I know my eyesight has changed again and I need a new prescription but I haven’t had the chance to get my eyes tested yet! I’d put money on that being the cause as it’s affected my darts in the past when my sight’s changed. D’oh! Mind you, it’s nice to have a reason, even if there’s nothing I can do about it for now.
