The Darts and Dominoes Section uses the Ariel Lounge for matches and for practice sessions, always on Monday evenings. We play in the Bedford & District (Leigh) Darts & Dominoes League which comprises 18 teams from the area, mainly around Leigh town centre although there are a few, like us, from a wider area. Our season runs from mid July until May, leaving only about 6 weeks between seasons. Separate leagues operate for Darts and for Dominoes, Darts teams consisting of 7 players (playing singles) with Dominoes having 10 players playing in pairs. We always expect to be one of the “better” teams and have in the recent past topped the league for both Darts and for Dominoes as well as figuring in the knockout competitions held towards the end of the season. These competitions include:-
- Darts Singles
- Dominoes Pairs
- Combined Darts and Dominoes Team
To cover our playing expenses Members pay a subscription of £10 which is in addition to subscriptions to Culcheth Sports Club, membership of which is required.
The dart board in the Ariel Lounge is available for use by any Culcheth Sports Club member when the room is not being used for any other purpose. There is a small charge of £1 per hour – please see the Club Steward.
Membership of the Darts & Dominoes Section is regularly about 20 to 22, which has been found to be acceptable with a full team turn out of 17 needed each week. However new members are welcome at any time, although registration for League purposes is only at the start of the season.
