Captain & Player Behaviour Policy

Share this post

Darts is a game that owes much of its unique appeal to the fact that it should be played not only within its Laws but also within the Spirit of the Game. Any action which is seen to abuse this spirit causes injury to the game itself. The major responsibility for ensuring the spirit of fair play rests with the captains.


Responsibility of Captains

The captains are responsible at all times for ensuring that play is conducted within the Spirit of the Game as well as within the Laws.


The Spirit of the Game involves RESPECT for:

Your opponents.

Your own captain and team.

The game and its traditional values.


It is against the Spirit of the Game:

To direct abusive language towards an opponent or team mate or supporter.

To indulge in cheating.

To seek to distract an opponent either verbally or by harassment.

To threaten players, team mates or supporters. This will in no way be tolerated.

Specific extracts from The NDA Constitution:
