Aaron Bower

Darts, and plenty of other bar sports, have seen a huge upturn in participation in recent years, not just in my home of the United Kingdom, but all over the world. I love to talk, convey and discuss the hottest talking points in the world of sport, and I hope you do, too.

There are literally millions of variations on everybody's impression of darts; be it the way we throw them, the games we play, and the types of darts we own. The game is limitless in its ability to grow and get bigger.
