Darts has a long history as an athletic event in China.

Darts was officially approved as a sporting activity by the General Administration of Sport of China in 1999. Since then, it has gained popularity as an indoor competitive sport. In recent years, China has been making an effort across the nation to promote sports with such support given to development of large-scale organized tournaments.

In 2021, despite the fact that the new coronavirus infections are not yet under control, there were 30 elementary and junior high schools that opened darts-related physical education classes.

This is the reason why we always try to create a good practice environment for children and together with the introduction of the world’s most advanced training concepts to China, we hope to discover excellent young darts players, to guide them on towards appearing on a grand world stage.
