How to setup a dartboard

Having your board set up correctly is one of the most crucial parts of playing darts.
Below we have a diagram of the measurements for your dartboard and we have some Perfectdarts tutorial videos to help you as well.

Dartboard Height and Distance

  1. The Dartboard should hang at a height of 5'8" (1.73 meters) from the floor to the centre of the bullseye

  2. The distance between the throw line and the dartboard should measure 7'9-1/4" (2.37 meters)

  3. There should be a distance of 9'7-12" (2.93 meters) diagnol from the centre of the bullseye to the front of the oche

NOTE - The 2.37 metres measurement needs to be taken off the front of the dartboard NOT off the back wall. The best way to do this is set up a ‘plum line’ from the bullseye and measure from the point it touches the floor.

Below are two videos on how to hang a dartboard at the correct height & how to measure the throwing distance from the board to the oche, made by the team here at Perfectdarts.
