Dartboard Distance

The minimum distance from which darts can be thrown is also set. The standard throwing distance is 7 feet, 9 ¼ inches from the dartboard, measured horizontally and perpendicular to its face. This limit or line is called the toe line. Usually the toe line is marked by the raised bar which is two feet in width. You can alternatively set the toe line at a diagonal distance of 9 feet 7 3/8 inches from the center of the board set at appropriate height.

So, these were the dartboard height and distance regulations that you need to know. Players personally immensely enjoy playing darts as it is a simple game which is not only a lot of fun, but also improves concentration.

The diagram is rather self-explanatory. For those people that want to make absolutely certain their dartboard is properly installed, you can measure the diagonal that goes from the bullseye center to the throwing line and it should be 293.14 centimeters or 9 feet 7 3/8 inches.
